Welcome to The Syracuse Rocket Club
The Syracuse Rocket Club promotes and encourages safe hobby rocketry in the Central New York area
Next Club Meeting: Monday May 6, 2019 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at Walt's Hobby. At this meeting we will prepare for this year's Central New York Rocket Team Challenge (June 1), and our club's participation at NYPOWER (May 25-27) and the Upstate Research Rocketry Festival (June 21-23).
Next Sport Launch: Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Weigand's Field. Thanks to all who attended the 2018 Syracuse Rocket Club launches. You made it another great rocketry season. Check out the stats from our 2018 launch season on the Launch Statistics page. Join us for some club meetings at Walt's in the coming months. Finish up your winter building projects and fly with us starting in May.
2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. NAR Sections around the country will commemorate this historic event with special launches on July 20, 2019. We hope to have many scale Saturn V rockets, and other scale models from the US space program to launch at our July 20 launch. If you are interested in building a Saturn V rocket to fly, see the April and October issues of our newsletter Whats Up for some suggestions on where to find a kit. You should be able to order one of the new Estes Saturn V kits from Walt's Hobby as soon as they are released.
The Syracuse Rocket Club welcomes families and anyone interested in the hobby to attend our launches. We have rockets available for children to fly and take home. We will teach new flyers how to prep and fly their rockets. Join us at our next monthly club meeting or launch.
Check this web site the evening before the launch to confirm launch status.
