10 March Launch Day


The Queensland Rocketry Society Inc. (QRS) would like to cordially extend to all interested persons and members of the Australian Rocketry community an open invitation to join with us for our March launch.  This will be a public open launch day.  For those who have not experienced one, it is a chance for the QRS to display the pastime of rocketry to the public.  The event has been advertised to many media outlets including newspapers, TV and radio.  Based on past experience, we can expect up to 1,000 visitors.

The launch program will be similar to the usual non advertised events but with a few more special launches.  One super special event for March will be the launching of Nic Lottering's 3.5 metre Sledgehammer rocket on an M (that's big) motor.  This will be a exciting experience.

Date : Sunday, 10 March, 2013
Range Open : 0800
Range Closed : 12.00

The launch will be conducted at our LA2 site (details are located in this web site).  Public parking will be in Cedar Grove Road.

This launch event is subject to weather conditions on the day of the launch over which we have no control. Adverse conditions such as rain, high winds and limited visibility will affect the ability to safely launch from this location and the launch will be rescheduled.

If, on the day of launch, you suspect that this may be case, you are encouraged to check this post again for updates or contact 07 3333 1655 and follow the prompts to local clubs. A cancellation notice will be posted at the launch site shortly after 7:00 AM on the day of the launch.

Hope to see you there.
