Other Australian Clubs

Postby admin » Mon Dec 17, 2007 10:13 am

It has come to our attention that there may be other Rocketry Clubs in Australia that havn't been recognised.

We would like to make sure that all legitiment organisations have a section to help them promote and grow Rocketry safely.

Please send the administration team a PM if you know of any club/organisation that should be included in the forum. Please include relevant information showing the organisation is operational.

Not Australian as such, but you could include http://www.rockets.co.nz/nzra/nzra.htm
for any potential trans-tasman members.

Space Pilots Club of Rangeville, Toowoomba has been in existence for 39 years launching up to G size rockets, now nearing 12,000 launches. (That's twelve thousand). The club was started when interest was sparked by the telemetry station being built at Cooby Creek north of Toowoomba by PMG, CSIRO and NASA. The station has long gone but the Space Pilots are still here.

The TARMAC club (Toowoomba Amateur Radio Model Aero Club) has a few members supporting the Space Pilots Club launches. These represent the mainstay of the national Model Aeronautical Association of Australia rocketry interest, the avenue to international competition governed by the Federation Aviation International (FAI) organisation.

Hi Peter

Hello to all the boys and girls in Toowoomba.

Please tell us how often you fly and also feel free to advise the forum on when and where your next launch will be conducted.

Also photos of any and all TARMAC members launches and your range will be warmly appreciated.

Hope to hear from you soon ......

Is it true, that you guys just launch from Toowoomba, to get a 2000 foot jump on everyone else ?

:D :D :D

Is it Gisbourne or Gisborne, and for that matter is it in Australia or New Zealand ?

In New Zealand. Guys at work ( from NZ) said they know where the place is too. The add might just point to the place where it was filmed, maybe nothing to do with the club, but then I could be wrong. :)
