Rocketry Victoria

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)

Couldn't help but notice that the Rocketry Vic page has disappeared and that all their old posts are now under M.A.R.S. Was this intentional or did something go wrong when MARS was added to the forum? :?

The Rocketry Victoria section hasn't disappeared, it has evolved.

A long time ago (in a galaxy far away...) A Tripoli board member insisted that TRA does not have a section on any external forum and subsequently the Rocketry Victoria section was created to allow discussions about various launches in Victoria. Coincidentally, the TRA club in Victoria was actually meant to be renamed to Rocketry Victoria, however even after this was agreed on, it never actually happened (this is a long story and only good for around a rocket bonfire with plenty of booze).

So, as a part of evolution and not to revoke any history, the section formerly known as Rocketry Victoria is now the active MARS group. Apart from the name, nothing has changed and it is encouraged for people to talk about any and all Victorian launches in this section.
