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 September 9, 2019 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at Walt's Hobby. Discussion Topic: SciFi rockets. Bring your SciFi rockets to display and discuss. New to model rocketry? Bring your rocketry projects or questions to our meeting - we'll provide answers, tips and ideas to help you get ready to launch.

Next Sport Launch: Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM at Weigand's Field. This is our annual sport launch, family picnic, and night launch. The launch theme is Odd-Rocs. Bring your unusual rocket designs to fly and your lighted rockets for the night launch. The contests for this month's launch are Drag Races and B Streamer Duration. The club will provide free hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks. Just bring a dish to pass.

Apollo 11 Celebration: 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. NAR Sections around the country commemorated this historic event with special launches on July 20, 2019. Syracuse Rocket Club launched several scale Saturn V rockets, and other scale models from the US space program at our July 20 launch. We salute the thousands of men and women of NASA and companies across the nation whose ingenuity, dedication and drive carried the first humans to the surface of the moon and back.
