Fun events are themed days to encourage people to bring out special models or types of models and fly them. These events are held at our normal launches along with regular normal launching. One aspect of the fun is that you get to see models you may never have seen before! Check out the rules for NAR competition on the NAR website and remember that these local events are just for fun, so please build and fly a rocket and just indicate the “Fun Event” in the “Special Comments” line on the normal flight card!
Check back often since we'll add more throughout the year. If you want to suggest an event, do so at our get-together after each Santa Fe Dam launch at the Jack-In-The-Box.
