The QRS Inc has a membership to suit most people who are interested in rocketry. Most people join as a Flying Member in order to fly rockets at the club's monthly launch events. If you are interested in rocketry and following QRS Inc but don't wish to fly rockets yourself then you are welcome to become a Social Member. Social members receive access to all the information and invitations to club functions. If you would like to just come along just to watch then feel free to do so at any of our public launch days. If you enjoy a launch event as a spectator you may wish to support the club with a simple gold coin donation.
