NEXT LAUNCH - June 1.
Our access and use rule is "if it is dry you can fly."  Rain gauges say we have been without rain for four weeks. Hopefully the playa is dry!

Formed in 2010, this chapter of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) is devoted to serving those interested in rocketry - from model rockets through high power rocketry. We are the Northern Nevada Western Region Section 728 of the NAR.


In 2018, we joined up with Tripoli Reno (TRAR) and will be conducting joint launches going forward under the name Sierra Rockets.


WAIVERS TO 7,200 FT AGL!!! 

In 2019, we will be holding launches at Misfit Flats under Tripoli rules as well as NAR rules. See the launch calendar for details.


Next high power launch is set for SATURDAY June 1. Mark your calendars now, and please contact us to see if we are planning for camping the night before.
