MC2

The Music City Missile club is a proud member of the Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce!
We encourage and promote safe sport rocketry in Middle Tennessee.


Everyone is welcome!

The Next Launch is on Saturday, August 5th, 2017
AUGUST COULD BE THE LAST HIGH POWER LAUNCH AT THE SOD FARM IN 2017!

Mid-Tenn Turf Sod Farm
2475 Hickerson Road
Manchester, TN 37355

The Music City Missile Club will be administering this launch.

Please note that we most likely will be launching from a different side of the field for the rest of the year due to harvesting and planting operations!  The new area is not compatible with high power launches.  This could mean that starting in September, nothing above a G impulse motor may be flown.

CERTIFICATIONS: If you are seeking to certify in Manchester this year, you need to be at the August launch or you will have to either make other arrangements, or wait until next season.

Setup is at 9:00am  Flyers meeting about 10:00.  The range will be open until 5:00pm and the flight ceiling is 12,000 feet.


EVERYONE IS WELCOME! 

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.

Below is a video recorded by SoAR member, Lucius Williams IV summarizing the event and documenting the successful Level One Certification flight of Lee Childers.

Message from the MC2 President

SOUTHERN THUNDER 2017 IS HISTORY!!!

I would like to say "THANK YOU!" to the Southern Thunder Committee, and the officers and volunteers from the 4 clubs; MC2, HARA, SoAR and BRB.
