Thank you HARA

Our rocket club has served the community many times this year in the form of launch demonstrations and building sessions. The schools are immensely grateful and the students love it. Here are a few scenes from Horizon Elementary this month that fired 24 models.










The Jenkins family had a great day flying with Madison Cross Roads back in April. How many young Goddards have we inspired? We hope it could be a bunch.

Meeting and launch this week!

This Thursday is the monthly HARA meeting at the ETF on the grounds of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. Got quite a few things to discuss, so please be there at 7:30 PM!

We have also received some good news – there will be a high power launch up at the Manchester sod farm this Saturday. The range opens at 10 AM, and the weather looks absolutely fabulous for launching rockets! So collect your rockets and motors and mosey up the road for what could very well be the final high power launch of the season (There will be no on-site vendor this Saturday, so plan accordingly)!

Did I mention that visitors are very welcome at our meetings and launches? Ya’ll come on out and join the fun!

Important! Anyone wishing to certify level 3 should contact the HARA or MC2 officers as soon as possible to ensure the appropriate people are present at the field. The HARA officers can be reached at

The previous week saw the passage of tropical entity Cindy dumping rain all over Tennessee and threatening the schedule, but Saturday was clear enough to set up the range on the soggy sod.
