Hello to all of our Flyers!


There are some changes with the Vista View Park Launch Schedule.

Vista View Park has some events scheduled that have made us re-schedule our upcoming Launches.

Our next four Launch Dates are as follows:

Saturday September 12th, 2015  (Second Saturday of  September)
Saturday October 3rd, 2015  (First Saturday of  October)
Saturday November 7th, 2015 (First Saturday of  November)
Saturday December 12th, 2015 (Second Saturday of  December)

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.


It is time again for an afternoon at Rick’s!

Your Host at this Florida Spacemodeling Association (FSA) event is the Legendary “Rocket Rick Boyette”

This is a NAR Member Launch Event.

The FSA Launch starts at 12:00 Noon.  We can always use your help to setup so if you can, please get to the Dyer Park field between 11:00 AM and 11:30 AM.


Site Location: Dyer Park is located at the intersection of Haverhill Road and Dyer Boulevard in West Palm Beach, just south of SR 710 (Beeline Highway). Exit I-95 at Blue Heron Blvd; go west approx 1/4 mile to N. Military Trail, then go south approx 1/4 mile to Dyer Blvd; west about 1/4 mile to park entrance. Continue west along the access road toward the Model Airplane Field & follow the designated paved bike path. Look for the pop-ups to the north.

You can also take the Florida Turnpike and get off at the Beeline Highway Exit and go East to Haverhill and make a Right to go to the Dyer Boulevard Park Entrance.

For more information for this Launch,  please go to

For all Launches, please remember to bring water, sun screen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong and even on a cloudy day,  you will get fried! Chairs, tents and tables are welcome as well.

See you all on Saturday August 29th, 2015 at Dyer Park

Hello Everyone!

MCS_1360 (Medium)


First of all, thank you all for sending their good wishes to Scott and his family.  I know it is very much appreciated!  We all look forward to his return sometime soon.



The BARS Launch Crew From left to right:  
Nick Martin, Scott Siedler, Marc Schlesinger and Mike West

All of our Flyers had a really Great Day!

Mike West made the trip South today to help out on the field and at the Launch Tables accompanied by our Co-Captain Nick Martin who had a field day with his Honest John Flights.

Congrats to Ryan and Stephen for successfully completing their NAR Level One Certifications.

And Kenzie continues to amaze all of us with her pristine builds and perfect flights.

Dennis had quite a few flights today as always with his wife Andrea doing all of the Flight Photography.

Martin and his sister made the trip North and made several good flights including the always entertaining Flying Saucer!

And thanks to Roy and Brian for going  above and beyond to help out and even getting some flight time in.

 Broward Area Rocketry thanks all of our Flyers for joining us today.  You are the people that make what we do happen and your assistance with the setup and breakdown was a huge help.

One last note:  We were talking with Rocket Rick of the WPB Club about possibly merging the two clubs and just having one Launch a month up in West Palm Beach.  After thinking a lot about that, we at Broward Area Rocketry have decided that we have too much fun and enjoyment here in Davie Florida not to continue what we do.

We fully support Rick and the FSA and you will see many of us at both Launches.

 So…. See you all next month on Saturday September 5th, 2015  at Vista View Park. 
We get there by 10:00 AM to setup and get flying by 11:00 AM.

Also,  don’t miss Rocket Ricks Special Launch on  Saturday August 15th and the regularly scheduled Launch on Saturday August 25th, 2015 up at Dyer Park in West Palm Beach.

Also on the Schedule is the Homestead Public Rocketry Clubs Launch next Saturday, August 8th, 2015.

Please see our Launch Calendar in the Header of our Web Site for full information and Links for all three clubs.

 Lastly, If you are looking for Motors and Custom Chutes locally, please contact Mike West at   or  Nick Martin at

Hello Everyone!

Important News and Changes!

MCS_7645a (Large)Everyone who fly’s with us knows Scott Siedler very well.  He is absolutely the backbone of Broward Area Rocketry.

Unfortunately, Scott’s wife is currently quite ill and he will be taking a break from our activities for awhile.

Scott does so much for this club, we were not sure if we could continue without him and honestly it is going to be very tough but we will continue!

The last thing we wanted to do was to shutdown something that Scott worked so hard getting Broward Area Rocketry where it is today.

When you come this Saturday, if you want to drop off a get well card for Mrs. Siedler, please do so and we will get them to Scott and his wife. We at BARS wish them the very best.

Secondly,  Our new start time will be 10:00 AM for this Saturday.  All help will be appreciated.  We should be up and Flying by 11:00 AM

We need people for setup so all help will be appreciated. The faster we setup, the faster we fly.

We are also asking anyone who would like to be a permanent part of our Launch Team.

To do this you should be available the First Saturday of every month and if anyone who can do this,  we are also looking for a free or very inexpensive place to store our Equipment Trailer.

Please check with Marc or Nick this Saturday. You can contact Marc directly at his office # 954-922-8627

Lastly, please note that Bernie has moved to Central Florida and is no longer supplying motors at this time.  We are working with Nick Martin & Mike West to be able to do that. We will have an update soon.

And now for the rest.

Welcome to our August edition of our General Launch this Saturday August 1st, 2015 starting at 10:00 AM

NAR Level 1 Certification Flights:

 We still have time slots open for NAR Level One Flights so if you are ready,  lets go for it!

For full Launch Information,  please read our BARS General Launch Information before you come out to the Park.
The BARS Launch Crew (Nick, and Marc) get to the field at Vista View Park  between 8:00AM and 8:30AM to setup the Tent, the Launch Equipment and Pads. Everyone is invited to help and it is very appreciated.

All NAR and Vista View Park Safety Rules are in EFFECT! Let’s have a SAFE DAY!

 For all Launches, please remember to bring water, sun screen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong and even on a cloudy day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents and tables are welcome as well.

Please remember that Broward Area Rocketry does not charge any per Flight or Yearly Membership Fees for our Monthly General Launch.   We exist solely on your donations.   Don’t forget to throw something in the Donation Jar as you come around to the Flight Table to Sign in.  Thank you all who continue to help BARS offer our Launches every month!
