The Oregon Rocketry flying season for 2017 is now complete. We had a great Rocketober high power launch on October 27-29 (delayed one week due to bad weather). We had some of the best flying weather ever on the last weekend in October this year. Three days of sunshine, blue skies, and temperatures in the mid-60s. We had 127 flights – one of the highest totals ever for Rocketober. Thanks to all who participated and made it a great launch. There are now some pictures from this year’s Rocketober posted on the multimedia page – check them out.

Our last model rocket launch for the year was completed on Nov. 4th at Garden Home Park. Thanks to Stefan Jones and George Rachor for making this year one of the best ever for model rocket flying in the Portland area. Model rocket launches will resume on the first Saturday in May at Garden Home Park.

The next monthly meeting of Oregon Rocketry will be on Dec. 7th at Giovanni’s Restaurant in Beaverton starting at 7:30 PM. We will be discussing launch activities in 2018 and selecting our slate of candidates for the 2018 board of directors. The annual meeting for Oregon Rocketry will be held on Thursday, Jan. 4th, at Giovanni’s. Join us for elections, free pizza, and a kickoff for the 2018 season.
