Rocketing Skyward In Sunbury

13 Sep , 2018  

The “sky’s the limit” this Saturday as the Central Ohio Rocketry & Spacemodeling Alliance hosts its monthly launch at Freedom Park in Sunbury.

Join the group to launch your rockets or just to watch the fun. Members will be on hand to answer questions and to demonstrate many facets of model rocketry. They will supply launch equipment and might be able to offer motors for you to use. They can also inspect your rocket, and help you prepare it for flight. If it needs repair, they can offer tips, and possibly even help repair it on the spot.

Freedom Park is big enough for “D” motors if the wind is light. The plan for this Saturday’s event is to start and hour early so as to watch the Space Balloon launch. Set up will begin at 9 AM, and be ready to launch at 10 AM. Fun will continue until approximately 2 PM.

According to its website, the Central Ohio Rocketry & Spacemodeling Alliance is a chartered section of the National Association of Rocketry and was formed in August 2015.

Separately, these members pursue their rocketry interests in many ways including scratch building, community education and NAR competition. While they enjoy their individual pursuits across central Ohio, organizers saw that their shared experiences had the potential to ignite a new enthusiasm for rocketry & spacemodeling in the area.

The monthly launches take place on the third Saturday of the month, weather permitting. Check the organization’s website for any updates, including weather cancellation.
