The Lethbridge Rocketry Association is a group of individuals who get together to promote the safe building and flying of all rocket sizes and power classifications. We fly everything from small model rockets on A thru G impulse motors, to larger more sophisticated rockets equipped with electronics and tracking devices.
We are affiliated with the Canadian Association of Rocketry L'Association Canadienne De Fuséologie (CAR-ACF) and follow all rules and regulations as set out by the CAR-ACF. You must be a CAR member in good standing to launch any rockets.

Contest 1 – Altitude
As this is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, and the moon will be approximately 364,000 KM from the earth at perigee around the dates of Rock Lake, we will be having two altitude contests.
A-G motors: Altitude to reach is 364 feet. Use your Jolly Logic or Estes altimeter to measure. Closest flight to that altitude on ANY model motor, will win a prize.
Highpower motors: Altitude to reach is 3640 feet. Use any reporting altimeter to measure. Closest flight to that altitude on ANY model motor, will win a prize.
Contest 2 – Lander
Continuing in our Apollo 11 theme, we will have a contest for ANY lander of ANY scale. Object will be to land closest to the pin, but we will have a point structure that will encompass impulse landing location, landing upright, and other factors to allow ALL motor classes to compete together. Break out your stock or upscaled Mars Lander, Mars Snooper, Soviet Lander, Starship Vega, and Outlander. Or, maybe you have a great custom design that you want to use. The only rule is that it must have legs!
