We have a launch site at long last!!! 9-6-2022

We have a launch site in Moorpark where we will be launching twice a month. Mary and I worked very hard for three long years but we did it and we are very excited about being able to launch there regularly!

Our first launch is September 24th and we will report back with a full report with video and pictures.

This site is on private land and you can only launch there on scheduled section 855 launch dates.

The Star Trek Future begins here!

This site is under construction and being converted to our local Ventura Rocketeers website. The kits will continue to be sold but the main drive us this site it to promote STEM, TARC, and youth and community education and activities for model rockets.

Mary and I welcome you to our website and our section 855 of the National Association of Rocketry.

I’d like to invite you all to our new section # 855 for Ventura area. We are currently in the process of opening a local launch site in Ventura. We are looking for a site somewhere between Ventura-Oxnard-Camarillo area. Ventura Rocketeers received the section certificate yesterday and we already have a meeting at the Rotary Club this week and plan after that to contact the City Parks department to get the ball rolling.

This of course will be for LPR maybe up to G motors depending on the site. It’s our mission to get the local youth, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, schools involved with hopes of setting up a local TARC team and more.

It is a hardship for many to drive to Santa Fe and or ROC Lucerne. Having a local site would benefit the local rocket community providing sport flying for the local NAR members as well as engaging the local youth in programs and launches to further their ambitions of aerospace.

Our headquarters is at our studio in Ventura. Please email us if you’d like to visit us and tour the studio. Mask wearing and distancing is required.

You can follow our activities and see the studio by following this link:
