Go For Launch
CRASH holds sport launches twice each month year 'round. Launches are held on the first Sunday at Noon and the third Saturday at 10:00 AM at Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood. There are two exceptions this year due to other events at the park. We will launch on April 20, and May 31. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no fee for launching with us, but contributions are welcome, and will help us maintain and improve our equipment.
The next launch is March 22 and 23. This will be the 2014 Bruce Markielewski Memorial Rocket Contest. Sport fliers are welcome, but must bear in mind that contest flights have priority. We invite everyone to enter. Many of the events do not require any special preparation, and can be flown with a rocket you probably already own.
CRASH is National Association of Rocketry Section 482. We conduct all of our launches in accordance with the Model Rocket Safety Code.
CRASH conducts FAA-notified, non-waivered launches. This means that we can fly rockets with a maximum gross liftoff weight of 1,500 grams (approximately 3.3 lbs., or 52 oz.), and a propellant weight limit of 125 grams. This propellant limit includes some 38mm AeroTech reloadable H-class motors (H123, H242), as well as a few others. If you are unsure if a certain motor - or combination of motors - is permitted, please ask before flying.
