2019 was a great year for the Syrause Rocket Club. Great flying weather, new families, new members, and great contest competition helped us achieve a record number of flights for a season. We want to make 2020 an even better year. Join us for our winter club meetings. Build some new rockets this winter and fly with us in 2020.
The October launch was cool and sunny and the wind remained relatively calm thourgh the day. 12 flyers enjoyed a relaxing day of rocketry. The launch finished our 2019 competition season with a close race to the finish for the most motors used. Dennis Friend inched past Tom Butler to in the "most flights" category - Dennis had 61 successful flights for the season, while Tom finished with 60. Tom dominated the field in this year's contest flying with a total of 40 contest points. Rich Holmes finished in second place with a season total of 27 points.
Contest Flying in 2020: In 2020 the Syracuse Rocket Club will be assisting the Monroe Astronautical Rocket Society in hosting NARAM 62. This is the National Association of Rocketry's annual contest meet, which includes the finals of the National Rocketry Competition and a sport launch. It will take place on July 25-31, 2020 at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo. We have been holding informal competitons at our monthly launches for several years. With NARAM coming to New York State in 2020, Syracuse Rocket Club plans to hold NAR-sanctioned contests at our 2020 launches. Stay tuned for more details.
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.
