Hello Everyone.

As it is said, All Good Things Must Come To An End.

I know it has been a while since we Posted, and we were hoping to Re- Launch Broward Area Rocketry.

Unfortunately, between Covid, the loss of several people through passing, moving out of the area, and other personal health issues, we are officially shutting down this Chapter of BARS.

I would like to personally thank all of you who put in an incredible amount of time and effort to keep our Club running.

I would like to personally thank Brian Smith “The Keeper of the Trailer”, George Seijo, Scott Seidler, Mike West, and Nick Martin for EVERYTHING!

And of course, the Late and eternally Great, Gene “Roy” Snidow, Rest in Peace our friend.

You guys are the BEST!

And finally, thank you to all our Flyers and their families and friends who over the years came out and supported what we did.   Thank you all.


Sincerely Yours,

Marc Schlesinger
Broward Area Rocketry

Closing out 2020 in  Memory of Roy Snidow Jr.

I think Roy would have loved this picture.

The Saturn 5  and the Christmas Holidays  were special for him.


It has been a rough year for all of us, most of our Launches canceled and the loss of one of our own.

From all of us at Broward Area Rocketry,  wishing you all the best of Health and Prosperity for the New Year.

Looking forward to getting our Field back as soon as possible.

The Bars Launch Crew

Brian, George & Marc

And a very special thanks to Nick Martin. We are all going to miss you!  Best of luck to you and your family in your future endevours!

As I reported in our last Email, Roy Snidow who was one part of our amazing Flight Crew, Passed Away on November 1st, 2020.

There will be a Memorial Service next Saturday at on November 14th, 2020 at 11:00 AM

The Service will be located at:

The Taft Street Baptist Church 7241 Taft Street. 
Hollywood Florida, 33024

It’s at the N.W. Corner of Taft Street and 72 Ave.  

Phone (954) 983-1413



Ironic that it will fall on a Vista View day.

All of our Flyers and families who would like to Show Their Respects are more than welcome to join the memorial Service.

To reiterate, Roy was an amazing person who has helped keep Broward Area Rocketry going for many years.

His knowledge of our hobby was only surpassed by the help he gave to the Club and all of the many hundreds of people who flew with us.

We could not have made Broward Area Rocketry work as well as it did without him and can never be replaced.

We wish to send our sincerest condolences to Roy’s Family, Friends and Associates.

I will post Services and Memorial Information as I receive it.   Rest In Peace.

The Flight Crew.  Broward Area Rocketry Society.
