Bring something to build, bring a rocket that needs repair, and make something creative out of the material we have on hand. We have lot of supplies to choose from and glue to use. LUNAR has had several generous donations of parts this year.
This years special is larger beefy rockets - Estes BT-60 (1.6 inch) and BT-80 (2.6 inch) and with 24mm motor mounts, lots of supplies, lots of fin materials, you can build something at the event or take a kit of parts home to build a rocket later.
This is a great event for rocketeers of all ages! Bring kids, friends, friends of your kids - free rockets for all who attend. With an upcoming Ames launch August 11 we want to see your new creations fly!
