Set the date on your calendar for May 21 and 22 2016 where Rocket Fest will take place in St-Pie-de-Guire, officially opening a very inetesting season for our club! Visit the event page for more details including weather condition updates when the event nears.

October Sky 2015, UPDATE: Go for Sturday, Sunday AND Monday!|
After a second weather review with even more up-to-date information, we've chosen to open up the whole weekend for rocket launches. We'll be waiting for you all on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (October 10, 11 and 12)! You may either choose to brave the cold (Saturday) or the wind (Sunday/Monday)!
While we're launching at the well known site #2 just like last year, we'll need to move the entrance gate (see attached picture). Please use the GPS coordinates on the picture to find the correct entrance.
Saturday should feature a sunny sky, low winds but also temps under the 10 degrees Celcius mark. Sunday has high risk of cloud cover, but conditions should remain decent for launch. On Monday, the temperature is expected to rise further, but high winds will also be something we'll need to look at closely.
We hope to see you all out on the field Saturday, Sunday and Monday!
October Sky 2015|
Our next launch; October Sky 2015 is approaching. The authorization request is sent, we are preparing feverishly for the final launch of the year for QRC. There are many motors just expecting a good weather!
So you are expected on October 10 and 11 in St-Pie-de-Guire, on the field # 2 on Rang du Bord-de-l'eau.
Weather is NO-GO for Horizon 2015|
Unfortunately we have to cancel the Horizon 2015 launch this weekend due to a very grim forecast that would only leave an hour or two of acceptable weather, with rain scattered through the day.
Let's hope for better luck when October Sky comes around!
