April 4th-5th Launch Date Canceled

Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

Due to CDC guidelines and statements set forth by both NAR and Tripoli, we will not be holding a launch as planned on the weekend of April 4, 2020.

Please stay safe and stay tuned for more updates on the next launch date.

Next SEARS Launch is March 7, 2020!

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

The next SEARS launch is scheduled for March 7, 2020! Due to issues with the weather and the launch site conditions, this will be the first club launch of 2020 so we hope to see plenty of flights ready to go!

Observers, beginners, youth, scouts, and families are all invited to attend. Bring the rockets, and the club will supply the launch equipment. Setup will begin at 8:30 am CST and the launch will kick off at 9:00 am CST. The day will wrap up at 5:00 pm CST. There is a range fee of $10 per carload of flyers. Be sure to bring a sack lunch, sunscreen, and water. Feel free to bring chairs and a tent/umbrella.
