UROC's New Year's Resolution Featured

Our new year’s resolution this year is to make our monthly meetings more meaningful. For the next three months, we’ve picked topics to discuss. This is a chance to exchange knowledge, ideas and tips with fellow rocketeers. Help others learn from your rocket blunders and visa versa. The ‘Show and Tell’ portion of the meeting will also follow these topics. Bring items that illustrator the topic or are just cool. Working on a certification project? Building something great or large for HellFire? Bring those too!


Here are the dates for this years Monday meetings:

  • February 13 “Riding the rails” launch system/ground support
  • March 12 Electronics/Switches
  • April 9 Recovery Systems, Parachutes
  • May 14 USLI Report
  • June 11 Complex Rockets
  • July 9 HellFire Prep, Rocket Finishing, HellFire Show and Tell
  • September 10 Repairing Rockets
  • October 8
  • November 12 (Note: This meeting is AFTER the November launch on November 10)

Here are the dates for the launches. As always, check for last minute go/no go status. This year’s dates follow the same pattern as last year, however the November Tripoli Research launch was moved up in hopes for better weather.  The March launch date falls on St Patrick’s Day. We’re using this opportunity to host a St Patrick’s Day Green Food themed tailgating party. Fell free to bring something to share, like Corned Beef and Cabbage or green jello with carrots.

  • February 18
  • March 17 St Patrick’s Day Green Food Tailgating Party
  • April 21
  • May 19 NAR Pioneer contest
  • June 16
  • HellFire August 2-5 -- 8/2 Tripoli Research, 8/3-5 NAR
