Launch Status Update

Go For Launch

CRASH holds sport launches twice each month year 'round. Please note there will not be a launch on July 5th. Launches are held on the first Sunday at Noon and the third Saturday at 10:00 AM at Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood. Everyone is welcome to attend.  There is no fee for launching with us, but contributions are welcome, and will help us maintain and improve our equipment.

CRASH is National Association of Rocketry Section 482.  We conduct all of our launches in accordance with the Model Rocket Safety Code.

CRASH conducts FAA-notified, non-waivered launches. This means that we can fly rockets with a maximum gross liftoff weight of 1,500 grams (approximately 3.3 lbs., or 52 oz.), and a propellant weight limit of 125 grams. This propellant limit includes some 38mm AeroTech reloadable H-class motors (H123, H242), as well as a few others. If you are unsure if a certain motor - or combination of motors - is permitted, please ask before flying.

NARAM 58 Events

PMC Plastic Model Conversion

E SCA (altimeter) E Scale Altitude with Altimeter.

G SD G Streamer Duration.

D RG MR (per Rule 9.12 we are prohibiting use of Radio Control in the event , i.e. free flight only), D rocket glide multi round duration

C PD MR C parachute duration multi round

A HD A helicopter duration

½ A SRA (altimeter). 1/2A super roc altitude with altimeter.

OSL Open Spot Landing

R&D research and development

Most of these will not find a place at the BMMRC. C parachute duration should be interesting, since the goal will not be the best time, but to recover your rocket twice. I just hope the provide neck rubs for the timers.
