ROCK LAKE 21 - June 28-30, 2019
Lethbridge Rocketry Association (LRA) and the Canadian Association of Rocketry (CAR-ACF) are pleased to bring you the annual Rock Lake Launch that occurs in late June or early July each year. This 3 day event has grown to become one of the largest launches in Canada and its location enables flights that cannot occur in many other places. Standard ceilings of 20,000 ft AGL with windows to 50,000 or greater are possible.
This launch is held under CAR-ACF rules and all fliers must be members. Memberships can be obtained on site and there are many membership options to choose from.
We will be hosting a number of competitions that will align with the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 flight and moon landing!
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!
