Here is the schedule for LUNAR launches and meetings. Launches at Snow Ranch are scheduled through May and again in the Fall. However the May launch is not a sure thing, as are the November and December launches. It all depends on the weather and the fire danger.
Since other groups sometimes have conflicting schedules, it's always wise to recheck the calendar each month shortly before driving to LUNAR events.
If you are driving a long distance, always verify launch information the morning of the launch by calling the LUNAR Hotline (925) 443-8705 .
Snow Ranch rain dates are one week after the scheduled launch.
TARC launches will be scheduled as needed in addition to our existing LUNAR schedule through April. TARC teams needing launches should contact the LUNAR President or TARC coordinator. See the LUNAR TARC Pages for information.
On Saturday, November 5th, 2016, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm we will hold a high-power sport launch at Snow Ranch. Check back here and check the hot line in case the launch has to be changed or canceled. LUNAR has not yet secured the 2016 Permit for the Club launches at NASA Ames. We have been granted permission to hold the launches in February and March, but nothing beyond March. At this time, we cannot handle any more outreach groups at Ames. We will deal with the Outreach groups we have already signed up and, hopefully, will be able to handle others in the future.
Launches at Snow Ranch are level 3 with an altitude limit of 15,000 feet and a maximum motor size of M. Prior LUNAR BoD approval needed on all flights above 2560 N.
If you are driving a long distance and/or the weather looks marginal, always call the LUNAR hotline to verify that the launch is happening as scheduled.
Once or twice a year we hold sanctioned contest launches for points in the NAR national contest standings. These are often organized in conjunction with other rocket clubs in the area (BayNar, AeroPac) but you don't have to be a member of any of them (or even the NAR) to participate. You are welcome to join just for the spirit of competition!
