Club Launches
Don't forget to come out to a Launch if you are nearby. We are always happy to see other rocketeers from distant shores. Colorado Springs is 6800 feet above sea level - When was the last time you managed 7000 feet on an Alpha with an A8-3 (200 ft + the altitude)? Try it from a 12,000 foot mountain pass!!!
If you already live here, bring your model rocket down and fly it! The club provides launch equipment. In addition to sports flying, the club is active in contests and competes strongly in the areas of Boost Gliders, Parachute Duration, Streamer Duration, Helicopter Recovery, Odd-Rocs and Altitude events. Some members participate in high powered launches (H and higher motors) in conjunction with the regional Tripoli association. High Powered launches are held at the Tripoli site (Hartsel Colorado).

COSROCS is proud to host Nadine Kinney's Rocket Photo Web Site. Nadine has been clicking away at our local launches for quite some time. She's also become a common sight at many of the national and regional launches. Her photos have been published in all of the major rocketry magazines, a rocketry related calendar for and they even appeared as a sequence of still shots in a rocket video.
Time sheets
Members should record their times soon after the activity: you forget what you've done otherwise. Our goal is to have a quarterly report to submit to the club. If you work in Excel, download the form, make it into a "Read Only" file, then copy and save that file for each quarter session. Submission dates for the individual volunteer forms are:
1st Saturday in January,
1st Saturday in April,
1st Saturday in August,
1st Saturday in December. That way, we have time to get them compiled for
the club's meetings within those same months.
