SEARS Launch January 2, 2021

December 30th, 2020

The next SEARS launch is scheduled for January 2, 2021! We will be following social distancing guidelines and encourage each group of flyers to stick with together. While we should be able to maintain social distancing, we still ask that all attendees bring a mask. We will have some disposable masks if you forget, but it really helps the club if you can bring your own. We will have a hand sanitization station and we will be cleaning and sanitizing common surfaces throughout the day. If you or anyone in your party or home are sick or have experienced COVID like symptoms in the last 14 days, please stay home this weekend and join us for the next launch instead! Our main goal is to keep everyone me safe while enjoying a day of rockets!

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 4:00 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.

June Launch Postponed for Weather!

June 2nd, 2020

Due to the not very good weather report for the weekend and now it looks like we will have an active tropical storm in the Gulf this weekend, we are pushing back the launch that was planned for 6 and 7 June to try it again on 13 and 14 June.

May 2, 2020 SEARS Launch On Hold!

April 30th, 2020

CDC guidance is being eased back in many states, and both NAR and Tripoli are beginning to lift restrictions. We are having conversations about how best to keep our club members safe while still holding a launch in the month of May, but in the meantime the originally scheduled May 2, 2020 launch is cancelled, with a later date to be announced, along with new safety guidelines for club launches.

April 4th-5th Launch Date Canceled

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.
