Rocketry – We have a launch date

All graduates from this year’s rocketry program have the opportunity to launch their rocket on Sunday, June 17. We will be launching from Connaught Range thanks to the Ottawa Rocketry Group who has kindly agreed to host us again.

Check the website before leaving as the launch could be cancelled due to wind or weather.

Our meeting point is close to the range, at a parking lot beside the intersection of Rifle Rd. with Shirley Blvd. (Link to Google Maps); coordinates for GPS are 45.3645N, 75.8826W.

Please note the following:

  • The launch area is in a restricted zone, so we must enter and leave as a single group. You must be at the meeting point at 9:30 AM.
  • We may need one or more parents to stay and help with transporting cadets between the meeting point and launch area.
  • It is an open area with no shade, so remember to bring a hat, water, sunscreen (and of course your rocket).

We’re ready for countdown!
