SOD Blaster 2019
August 30 @ 9:00 am - September 2 @ 6:00 pm$20
The second annual Labor Day launch event hosted by both the Tri-Cities Rocketeers and the Oregon Rocketry Club. It will be held at the Heinen Sod farm approximately 10 miles north of Pasco, WA. This site provides the safest place to fly in the Northwest during what is usually a time of high fire danger. They offer dry camping on-site and have many lodging and restaurant locations within a 20 minute drive from the site.
This event will include launches of commercial motors, and EX motors for TRA members. Altitude is the only limitation. The event will take place from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday September 6-8; and 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Monday September 2. Night launches are weather dependent on each night and are FAR-101 only.
Tri-Cities Rocketeer members fly for free, and non-members cost $20 for the weekend.
Registration will occur at the event before flying.
