Dates for 2018

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

Dates for 2018

Postby Raaahbin » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:26 am

Hi folks!

Everything seems to have gone pretty quiet on the MARS front lately, but I gather there was a successful launch last month. Are we still on for this month? Also, I'm starting to put in roster requests for 2018 already - is there a website update in the works with a launch schedule (even a tentative one) for 2018?

Looking forward to doing some more flying... it's been a pretty lean few months since MARS Attacks!

Any movement on this, yet?

Now I am "over seas" lol, planning is required - flights need to be booked, etc...

Y'all still doing summer launches?

Hey Jase,

the dates are up on the MARS website and there's one planned for later this month.

I am so DTL!

Hang in there for the dates Jase. Just about out. Tripoli have interleaved them with the MARS mob so as to have lots of launch options :D

MARS is hoping for a Drouin launch on the 24th of March, but it is unnaturally dry there at the moment... Let's hope for a couple of weeks of rain!

Here are the dates for Tripoli Rocketry Association launches for 2018
Launches are at the usual Serpentine launch site

15 April
6 May
3 June
1 July
5 August
2 September
6-7 October (Possible 2 Day Launch)
3-4 November (Possible 2 Day Launch)

As usual, launch dates are subject to a one week postponement due to inclement weather and if we are forced to scrub 2 launches in a month, we'll cancel that month's launch. Stay tuned to this email group or check the latest info on the website and facebook group.

Website is http://www.tripoli.org.au and this will be updated with the new dates in a few days. You heard it here first :D

All of the information for WWW 10th anniversary will be released in a few days.

All I can say at the moment is comparing it to the last 2 annual events in WA and VIC which were Epic, it is going NEXT LEVEL! I think the team in WA are just trying to up the bar before Thunda next year, but I for one am certainly excited about heading to WA for rockets, fireworks and just an epic party!!
