Launch for 4 May 2024 is a Go!

To all, the Waiver and NOTAM are set up for this Saturday 4 May 2024 from 9am to 5pm. The published NOTAM is 1A4 05/056. We have a good weather forecast for Saturday; on and off clouds, high of 87 with humidity at about 65%, light and variable winds. It will be on the warm side so be sure to bring lots of fluids to drink, hats, shade, sunscreen, lunch, chairs and lots of rockets.

Use the map at this link ( ) or put Sod Road Samson AL into the GPS to find the launch site.

Chris Short of Chris’ Rocket Supplies is our on-site vendor. See

Remember to keep your NAR and TRA membership cards up to date.

When setting up or taking down the range do not take the antennas off the launch control boxes, they fold over. When taking down the range please use some WD-40 on the clip leads on all the pads, this really helps with corrosion.

See you all on Saturday.
