Membership Fees for 2014
Oregon Rocketry has found it necessary to increase membership fees for the first time in many years for 2014, due to the rising costs of transporting club launch gear and providing servicing for port-a-potties in remote locations. The membership fees for 2014 will be the following:
- Individual membership $40
- Family membership $50
For first-year members the fees will be reduced to $20 individual/$30 family. Also, for junior members (under 18, not part of a family membership) the membership fee will be $20.
Families will still retain one vote. Membership cards are no longer issued, but you should receive a confirmation e-mail after submitting your membership form.
Launch Fees for 2014
For non-members the launch fees will be $20 per launch for high power launches in Brothers (covers all three days of the launch – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). For the NXRS launch in late June only, spectators will also be charged the same $20 per launch fee – spectators are discouraged from attending this launch as it is research all three days and the danger level is higher than regular launches.
For the Sheridan launch in September the same $20 per launch fee will apply to those flying high power motors. If you only intend to fly low and mid-power motors, however (A through G), the launch fee will be reduced to $10.
There are no launch fees for any of our low power launches at the Wilsonville site. Please come and bring your friends.
You are welcome to come and watch any of our launches (with the exception of the NXRS launch as mentioned above) for free.
