The Western Australian Rocketry Society INC. cordially extends an invitation to WARS & AMRS members and their invited guests to attend the range located at Grass Valley 75kms east of Perth, on Saturday the 28th July for one of our regular club launches for the 2018 season.

Facilities will be available onsite for AMRS members wishing to attempt L1, L2 & L3 certifications.

The range will open for operation at 09:30 and will continue through to 17:00. Any assistance with range setup is appreciated.

It was a great day, and congrats to Jeremy for his L3.
