Minnesota is Prefecture #45 of the Tripoli
Rocketry Association. It has launches on the second
Saturday of the month from May through November, and meetings from
December through April. Launches are held on a sod farm near
North Branch, MN.
Most of the rockets flown at these launches fall
into the large or high power classes. However, smaller model
rockets also make an appearance. To launch, you must either be
a dues-paying member of the club, or you must pay a launch fee for
the day. (Exception - kids may fly model rockets without
paying dues or fees.) You must be a current member of Tripoli
or the NAR to fly rockets with an H impulse or above.
If you like smoke, flame, and big rockets, this club
could be for you.
Spectators are welcome at club launches.
