Rocket Launch Demonstration - 2/11
Oregon Rocketry will hold a demonstration model rocket launch. Launch pads and controllers will also be available for those who would like to fly their own model rockets (A and B motors only please, due to the size of the field). Oregon Rocketry is a Portland-based organization with about 150 members that is affiliated with the National Association of Rocketry and the Tripoli Rocketry Association. It conducts model and high power rocketry events at several locations in Oregon throughout the year.
JUST ADDED: Rock-It girls will be present with their rocket and mentor at the launch. Dan Feller, a teacher at Silver Crest School in the Silver Falls school district and a member of Oregon Rocketry, organized a rocket building project with 5 girls in the 6th and 7th grade last summer. The large rocket was built by the girls and their mentor and flown twice last summer. The girls, known collectively as “The Rock-It Girls” will be present with their rocket.
Gary Goncher, president of Oregon Rocketry will lead the launch activities.
