Our launches are open to the public. In addition to our club's members, many rocket clubs from universities throughout the Southeast and Mid-west fly with us as well! This means several spectacular flights involving large rockets! Whether you are a flyer or a spectator,  a novice or a Born Again Rocketeer, our launches are always a lot of fun! 

You do not need any experience to fly with us.  If you require assistance we will arrange for a member to assist you. Members fly free at club launches, all others must pay a daily launch fee of $5.00 per flyer.

This launch, like all club launches is open to the public.  We will have enough pads to cover low through high power.  MC2 owns 8 foot 1010 and 1515 rails.  In addition, we have pads that will hold rods from 1/8th to 1/4 inch. 

Please join our Google Group as any changes of cancellations due to weather or field conditions will be announced there.

HIGH POWER CERTIFICATION

Anyone seeking to certify High Power at a launch should please place an inquiry in our contact form or email either our Tripoli or NAR advisors in advance so to insure that personnel and documents are available.  NAR High Power Level 1 and 2 certification applications and Level 2 exams will be available at the field.  Certification applicants please check in at the RSO tent.

As always, SPECTATORS ARE WELCOME !  WATCHING IS FREE!
