Hello to all of our Flyers!

Our Broward County Permit has been approved.  We have a “GO” this Saturday!

Mostly Cloudy79°F
Wind Speed: 7 mph SW Wind Gusts: 11 mph
Max. UV-Index: 2

First of all,  many thanks to Chris Deal and Jessica DeChellis who administrate Vista View Park, for their help in getting our Permit Approved!  Without them, we would not be flying.
We are finally back and looking forward to a LARGE turnout!!

Our next General Launch is this Saturday, December 15th, 2018 starting at 10:00 AM.  In January we will be back to our 2nd Saturday’s.

Please remember to sign up to our Member/Mailing  List.   You must be on that list to Fly and go out to the Launch Pads at Vista View.

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

You must be a NAR Member to go out to the Pads.  Not a NAR Member yet?  Come on out and see what we do.  And bring your Rockets.  A BARS Member will take your Rocket out to the Pads and recover it for you.

You can become a National Association of Rocketry Member by clicking on this link.   Please note on the signup form that NAR Section # 717 sent you.  The NAR likes to keep track.                                                                                            

If you have not already done so, please enter your name in the Flight Form on the Right Side of the page as we have to give this list to the Park a day before the Launch.  

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.

We fly A through G Motors but no Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets at this time.

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 set up 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, sunscreen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong.  Even on a Cloudy Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents, and tables are welcome as well.

Hello to all our Flyers.

Unfortunately bad timing and paperwork has forced us to cancel November’s Launch.

Honestly, we did not get our 2018-2019 County Park Permit in early enough and it will be several weeks before it gets all the signatures to be approved.

I am so sorry about this as we have had a year of cancellations because of really bad weather and now this.

Please accept my apologies and please come on out on December 8th, 2018 for the last Launch of the year.

Any questions, please contact me at info@narbars.org

Hello to all of our Flyers,

Unfortunately, the weather reports are getting worse for Saturday with the forecast showing Thunderstorms from early morning through late afternoon.

And on a better note….. Broward Area Rocketry has once again been asked by the Local Cub Scouts and the BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA South Florida Council to do an Exhibition at Camp Elmore which is on the other side of Vista View Park on Saturday October 6th, 2018.

We have decided to make this our October Launch and all Flyers are invited.   

It is a small field so this is a good time to have fun with Low-Low Power Rockets and Motors.  And if you have the Jolly Chute Releases,  we can do larger motors as well.

We will update the Web Site and Email with more information as we get closer to the Event.

Lets make this a big turn out as we support the Scouts and our Community!

If anyone has questions,  please contact Marc at info@narbars.org
