Launch next Saturday

Our launch is next Saturday, the 17th at 8:30-11:30 over in Liberty Hill! We will be doing a fun contest; Paratrooper Spot Landing.  Eject a trooper out, and try to parachute him closest to the spot.

We have a very generous person who is hosting the launch on their private property, so many thanks to them! We will set out a few signs to help direct people to the site, and also allow for proper parking.

Keep in mind this is an “A” motor field, although we may allow heavy rockets to use bigger motors.

The directions are on the Launch Sites tab, or use this link to go to Google Maps.

See you there!

Fun at the Festival

We went to the Leander Volunteer Fire Department Fall Festival yesterday and had a blast! Many people were interested in rockets, and we showed them our enthusiasm for rocketry… we had a few kids who had to be torn away because they were so interested! All in all everyone had a great time talking rockets.

To those of you who came here from the Festival; welcome! I have just a basic site now, and have plans to include pictures of people and rockets at our launches and events, among many other things. Our forums are pretty bare at the moment, but will get filled out to fulfill the needs of our group.

Hope to see you at the launch!

Welcome to Boots & Chutes Club site!

Hello everyone! We are a new club of the National Association of Rocketry in the Georgetown, Texas area.  We are excited to be starting this club, as we have been looking to provide an NAR club for quite some time. Motivation came to us as we finished up this year’s NARAM; the 22 hour drive home spurred on many topics, and it became clear that we had the desire and compunction to follow through. We hope to provide a safe, Texas-friendly club that is a barrel of fun each time!

Each of our launches will feature a fun contest; things like Eggloft Drag Race, Paratrooper Spot Landing and others will get a feel of competition and excitement going that will keep you coming back for more!

Thank you for visiting our Club; we hope to see you there!
