An Introduction to High Power Rocketry

Alan Caroll's AMRAAM taking off

7:00 p.m. August 3, 2021
Springer Cultural Center in Champaign

Here is a chance for you to get started in this fun and exciting hobby. If you've flown model rockets in the past and are interested in flying some of the larger rockets that are now available we will be holding a session on medium and high power rocketry on August 3, 2021. This presentation is intended for those 16 years of age or older. We will talk about and answer questions on what is involved in getting started with larger rockets and motors. If you've been flying model rockets for a while and are interested in moving up to something larger you should definitely come to this meeting! This event is Free! and open to all.

We hope that conditions will be such that we can safely hold this meeting in person. However, depending on the situation with COVID restrictions at the time the meeting is scheduled we may be forced to make it a virtual meeting on Zoom. In either case we may need to have everyone register with the park district in advance. If the meeting is held in person we may have a limit to how many can attend. If it is held online then we will need to get the details to everyone so they can participate on Zoom.

How do you know if you have a big rocket or not? Here is a list of ways to tell if your rocket is too big.
