Speaking on behalf of the Utah Rocket Club, it is with regret that we inform you that this year's Holiday Blast event that was scheduled to take place on December 11th at Archibald's restaruant has been canceled. The reason for coming to this unfortunate decision was due to low registration numbers.
Thank you to those of you who expressed interest in this event, and an additional nod of appreciation to those of you who did register. Full refunds for registration payments have been issued and should be seen within the next few business days if not already.
Over the next few weeks the plans for upcoming events and activities for UROC in 2018 will be announced and wlll hopefully provide many opportunities for UROC members to enjoy time together.
Our sincerest apologies for this change, we look forward to making up for it in the coming year.
We appreciate your support over the years and look forward to flying with you again soon.
Early-Registration is closing up this weekend. If you haven't signed up online yet, please do so now!
The Utah Rocket Club's annual holiday party takes place on Monday, December 12th at 7pm. This year the party will be at Archibald's Restaurant located in Gardner Village at 1100 West 7800 South - West Jordan, Utah Get Directions.
The meal choices include Gardner Chicken, which is grilled chicken breast with Black Forest ham, Swiss cheese and mushroom cream sauce. The chicken is served with rice pilaf and fresh vegetables. The other delicious choice is their Salt & herb crusted, slow-roasted prime rib which is served with herbed new potatoes and fresh vegetables. Finally, each person also receives their choice of "Archibald's Carrot Cake" or "Death by Chocolate cake" for dessert. If you have kids coming with you , children 12 and under can pick any of the items available on the restaurants children's menu on the night of the banquet.
The Christmas Odd-Roc contest is once again a GO as well so get those entries put together. Remember, your creation has to be able to fly as a rocket and recover safely (or at least look like it will). The winner will be determined by public vote and there will be an adult and a children's winner. The rocket must be new to the contest (not entered in previous years) and can celebrate any winter holiday you like.
Please plan on purchasing your tickets to attend in advance We do have to pay the restaurant as a group so on line payment is the best to reserve a spot.This party is a great chance to take a look back at this year's fun and to look forward to next year. This will also be a great time to meet your 2017 UROC officers. In addition to your contest entry, bring your memories from this year's events, feel free to share them with the group.
