The Queensland Government has just announced that it will contribute over $7,000 to the Queensland Rocketry Society (Inc) to assist the club in its program of public launch days and other community outreach events.
This funding was provided as part of the Queensland Government's Gambling Community Benefit Fund. The funds will be utilised for the purchase of a storage and transportation trailer, ground support equipment, a range laptop computer and various other items which will help improve the club’s rocketry events. The Queensland Rocketry Society will acquire these assets over next few months.
We would like to thank the Gambling Community Benefit Fund, whose contribution has ensured the ongoing growth and success of hobby rocketry in Queensland.
