Congrats to the Cardinal Gibbons High School TARC TEAM who on their last Certification Flight scored a 42.  This years target was 775 feet and to keep an Egg in the Air between 38 to 42 seconds.

The group hit an amazing 776 Feet and 53 Seconds (If I remember the time right).

And next…

Does anyone have any contacts for any personal who works at Homestead Air Force base? We are trying to find out if we can do some of our Launches there.   

Please email info@narbars.org if you you do.

Our next Launch at Vista View Park will be on Saturday April 8th, 2017 starting at 10:00 AM.

The weather this Saturday looks to be about perfect!

Please note:  Requirements to be able to Fly at Vista View Park

You must be a NAR Member

Please enter your name in the Flight Form on the Right Side of the page.  If your name is not on the list, you will not be able to fly.  If you have already done this,  please enter it again just to make sure. The Form will tell you if you have already done so and you will not have to do it again.


This Launch we are back to flying A through G Motors but no Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets. And all Rockets and Motors must be inspected before you go out to the Pads.

We will also be asking for people to volunteer to be Spotters on the field.  We will change people around as the day goes on.

We are doing everything we can to stay in the good graces of the Park and the County.

The BARS Launch Crew get to the field at Vista View Park  at about 10:00 AM 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 Winter Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents and tables are welcome as well.

Lastly, If you are looking for Motors and Custom Chutes locally, please contact Mike West at 561-862-7126 or email mvwest75@gmail.com   or  Nick Martin at  nmartinjr@me.com

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!

See you all this Saturday,

The BARS Launch Crew
