ROSCO launches are sport launches - meaning that only commercial motors may be flown.

ICBM launches are research launches - meaning that both commercial and research (by qualified flyers) motors may be flown.

Set up for the day begins at 10 am. Range is open until 30 minutes before sunset. Any help with set up and tear down is greatly appreciated! All dates are subject to change or cancellation. Please check before coming to the field.

Launch location: 8840 Camden Hwy, Rembert, SC 29128

Canceled: January 11-12 launch due to high winds and possibility of rain. Sustained winds of 10-15 mph with gusts to 25mph. Rather than having people travel and not be able to fly or all of our rockets ending up in trees, we are cancelling the launch.

Cancelled: March 7-8 ROSCO Sport launch
Due to heavy rains this week and high winds, the March 7-8 ROSCO Sport launch is cancelled. Our next launch is the April 18-19 ICBM Research launch. That launch is later than usual because of Easter.

Cancelled: The April 18-19 ICBM Research Launch is cancelled. With the stay at home orders in most of the areas where our members live and active cases of Covid-19 in Kershaw and Sumter Counties, we have decided that it is in the best interest of everyone that we cancel the launch. We hope that we will be able to have the Spring Freedom launch on May 23-25. If we do, it will be research all 3 days. Stay healthy!

Freedom Launch is cancelled for May. We must be responsible. We are trying to schedule a launch in the near future. Please be patient.

Folks, we are canceling the June launch. We would have to severely limit attendance and we would rather cancel at this stage. We are working diligently on permission to fly in July. Please be patient. Stay healthy!

Just don't call it a launch. Call it a Rocketry Protest

July ICBM Launch is Canceled. Out of an abundance of concern for the healthy of our members and the public, we cannot hold a launch in July. We will hope for better numbers and focus on August for our next launch. We just can’t support traveling in 4 states (SC, NC, GA, FL) with the highest COVID rates to hold a launch.

After careful consideration and due to restrictions in South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster’s new Executive Order 2020-48 (https://governor.sc.gov/sites/defau...ve Order No. 2020-48 - State of Emergency.pdf), we are canceling the August 8-9 ROSCO launch. The new order requires face coverings or masks as a condition of admission or participation in outdoor events and cleaning and hygiene practices as recommended by AccelerateSC. These restrictions would make the launch untenable.

With the average August temperatures on the field expected to be in the mid-90s with heat indexes of around 100 to 105, we can not wear masks/face coverings all day on the field without the significant risk of heat injuries. The cleaning and hygiene practices would be so burdensome that we would be unable to provide a port-a-potty for the launch.

Check back for updates on the status of Freedom Launch.

Terrible to have to do it, but with 3500-5000 infections a day in GA/SC and the new requirements in SC to have a gathering, we just can't do it. Fingers crossed for Freedom Launch.
