MC2


We encourage and promote safe sport rocketry in Middle Tennessee.


MESSAGE FROM THE MC2 PRESIDENT

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, THE APRIL LAUNCH HAS BEEN CANCELLED


As you may already know both the TRA and NAR have extend the prohibition on section and prefecture launches effectively ending our 2019/2020 HPR season.
If you have a line on a possible summer field let one of the officers know. Please do not approach the landowner about use, unless you know them personally.
We do have some activities we can schedule during the summer. More about that later as we see some light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel.
As before please refrain from commenting on the appropriateness of the associations’ actions, as members have very different opinions about their decisions.
Instead, take the experts advice and get outdoors, head to the park or your favorite flying field and launch a model rocket. Maybe drag along a family member or neighbor that’s never flown before.
If you need a place to fly, Chickasaw Trace Park outside Columbia accommodates rockets at the aeropark.

Time: TBA

MC2 will hold winter High-Power Launches.  All flyers, Low through High, are welcome!   The launches will be held at our winter field at Burman Farms. The ceiling is 9400 feet AGL. This is military airspace so there will be NO exceptions to the altitude. Activities begin at 9:00 am and flights will end at 4:00pm in January and February.  March and April Launches will end at 5pm. Please
stay and help us breakdown so that the equipment will be stowed before the rapidly approaching sunset.


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, expert or a Born-Again Rocketeer, our launches are always a lot of fun!

You do not need any experience to fly with us, however only NAR or Tripoli members with proof of current certification will be allowed to fly High Power. Members fly free at club launches, all others must pay a daily launch fee of $5.00 per flyer.


Newbies, do not worry, we will give you plenty of support and will even loan you a rocket to fly!  We keep rocket assembly materials onsite.  The facility also has an indoor restroom.

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.

See ya' soon!
