Members 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!

Non members are welcome but must sign a RELEASE FORM before launching.

We also highly recommend membership in the National Association of Rocketry or the Tripoli Rocketry Association.


SARG launches are on the fourth Saturday of each month. Check the main page of our website the day before each launch to check the status.

Launch Site

The Basics

  • We are extremely fortunate to have access to this property.
  • Anyone violating the rules below may jeopardize their right to return.
  • Anyone not respecting the property will be asked to leave and will not be invited back.
  • Vistors / observers are welcome. Please understand that rocketry, even when all safety codes are followed is a potentially dangerous activity!

Rules of the Range

  • Keep children under control at all times. There are several small "ponds" in the general area.
  • Leave absolutely no debris of any kind behind when you leave
  • Park only in designated area
  • No smoking at any time
  • Do not cross barriers to launch field unless directed by Launch Control Officer (LCO)
  • Observe all posted range rules or verbal instructions of a SARG officer or launch committee member
  • All NAR rules apply

Youth Outreach

Skip 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, contact Tom Sarradet, our youth outreach director.


  • Contact us when you plan to participate in a launch so that we can expect you.
  • You bring the kids, rockets, and motors. We supply all of the launch equipment.
  • To save time, download some FLIGHT CARDS and have them filled out before launch day. You will get through the safety officer and onto the launch pad quicker.
  • Bring water, snacks,and sunscreen. On hot days, an E-Z up will be useful. There are no trees on the launch field (they like to eat rockets, so we avaid them).
  • In addition to the low power launches, some of our members will be launching mid and high power rockets as well, so be prepared for a show.
  • Review the MODEL ROCKETRY SAFETY CODE with your group members before the launch day. You can find the club rules on the LAUNCH & MEETING SITES tab above.
