LAUNCH DAY FEBRUARY 13, 2016
WE ARE A GO!!!
We will start setting up the equipment at 8:30am and will open the range for the first rockets at 9:00am. We will launch until 4:00pm or sooner if things slow down.
If you need anything for the launch, you can order from Bay Area Rocketry and they will deliver it to the LUNAR launch the week before our launch or to our launch. When you order, please specify where you will pick up.
THE CEILING DECEMBER'S LAUNCH IS 2500 FEET. CONTACT DAVE KENYON IF YOU PLAN TO LAUNCH HIGH POWER ROCKETS AT THIS LAUNCH.
DIRECTIONS: Really simple:
1. Travel north or south on Highway 99 to Galt.
2 Take the 274B exit.
3. Turn onto Boessow Road and travel east for about 4.3 miles. You will come to a stop sign at the intersection with Alta Mesa Road, which means you are close.
4 The entrance to the launch site is at the end of Boessow Road.
IMPORTANT!!! Parallel park on the right side of the road. DO NOT GO ONTO THE FIELD WITH A VEHICLE OF ANY KIND! There is a crop planted and we want to make as little impact as possible. You may pitch a tent behind your vehicle.
DO NOT ENTER ANY OF THE BUILDINGS ON THE PROPERTY. There is a house and two barns and they are old and dangerous.
If you are new to model rocketry, please review the California & Federal Regulations for Rocketry.
You may also visit our Resource Page for helpful hints on building and flying model rockets. Our Vendors Page offers a comprehensive list of local and online vendors. Non members are welcome but must sign a RELEASE FORM before launching. New members may download a MEMBERSHIP APPLICATON and join at the launch. You can download Launch Cards and fill them out before the launch.
SARG membership is open to everyone who wants to participate in this fun and safe hobby. Many of us are what our hobby calls "born again rocketeers." We caught the bug as kids during the peak of the space race but left it behind as we grew older. When the kids and grandkids came, the fire was rekindled. We also have many young members who teach the old dogs new tricks with their mastery of building. We are a very social group and enjoy chewing the fat at the launches almost as much as flying rockets. So come to our next launch and check us out. Chances are, you'll get bit by the rocketry bug as well!

The members of SARG recognize the educational potential of model rocketry and stand ready to fully support the area's youth groups looking for a safe place to lauch their model rockets. Our launch equipment is capable of handling 8 low power rockets at a time, so we can handle large groups easily. The group fee is $10 which gives every member of the group unlimited launches for the day. For additional information, contactTom Sarradet, our youth outreach director.
