- Anyone is welcome to bring their rockets to a club launch and fly with us!
- Members of MC2 and HARA fly for free. Non-members must pay a launch fee of $5.00 per flier (unlimited flights).
- Anyone seeking to fly a high-power motor (H or higher) must be a member in good standing of either the National Association of Rocketry or the Tripoli Rocketry Association.
- High-power fliers must also possess the appropriate level of certification for either association.
- The Range Safety Officer (RSO) reserves the right to ask for proof of TRA or NAR membership as well as proof of certification.
- Please notify us in advance if you are planning to seek certification at the launch so that we can make sure that the appropriate resources and personnel are available.
- Southern Thunder is a special event and primary fundraiser for MC2 and HARA. The registration fees must be paid by all fliers regardless of club affiliation.
- Launch times are generally from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M.
- Field set up generally begins around 9:00 A.M. Setup takes 30 to 40 minutes (volunteers are welcome!).
- Immediately following setup is a mandatory briefing for all flyers at the RSO tent.
- SKIDMARK MOTORS: To protect the sod, the RSO makes the decision to allow or prohibit these motors based on the current conditions at the site. The decision is announced at the mandatory briefing.
- All launches require the flier to complete one flight card per rocket, per flight. Flight cards may be obtained at the RSO tent. You may also use the following flight card generator from the Rocket Reviews website. You will need a printer and card stock.
- At the bottom of this page is a link to download an MC2 Flight Card Template! You will need a printer capable of duplex printing and blank 4 x 6 index cards. Click on the solid blue arrow and either print or download the document. Orientation is Landscape.
- NEW for 2015 is an MC2 flight card file with fillable fields and drop down menus allowing you to create customized blank flight cards for each rocket in your fleet! It's a work in progress. Expect updates throughout the season!
