Does anyone know if there is an active club in Manitoba? Id love to get into mid to high power rockets.
Forming a Tripoli Prefecture requires three Tripoli members, with one Prefect (who must be L2 or above and who must have been in Tripoli for at least one year), one Secretary, and one more member. Something to consider is that Tripoli insurance is effective whether you fly in Canada or the United States. Tripoli currently has four Prefectures in Canada. (Eastern Ontario, Southern Ontario, Alberta, and Rawdon). Ive flown with members of Tripoli Alberta; they definitely do High Power and they do it well!Id love to know what happened. My search continues
Id love to fire this back up.
Good to know about Rawdon; Ill inquire.Keep containing the admin / members at CAR. if you go down the list, you'll eventually find someone who'll respond (and more likely be in, oh, Nova Scotia... maybe not the closest, but can maybe help "push" the admins to respond to you!)
Remember, CAR only has about 100 members.. and the list isn't all that up-to-date..
As Steve said. Contact both TRA & NAR and inquire there if there's a club nearby.
Steve, interesting to note that TRA has 4 prefectures in Canada. I believe the 'Eastern Ontario' club is ORG, and the 'southern Ontario' club is Swarm or CRC. The one is Rawdon (Quebec) opened and closed in about the same day! Surprised it's still listed as there hasn't been any activity in years.. (Unless the guy is holding some sort of grudge, and is holding onto the prefecture..)
Hi Prairie Boy,Any chance I could get that contact in Manitoba off of you? Looking to get into MPR and wanting some help/knowledge.
Dr Wogz: There are around 200 CAR/ACF members in Canada , yup pretty small.Remember, CAR only has about 100 members.. and the list isn't all that up-to-date..
Thanks for the kind words Steve. We do have great launches out here, wide open spaces makes for that and the friendly folks that allow us to launch on their land.I’ve flown with members of Tripoli Alberta; they definitely do High Power and they do it well!
With that said, I have always been impressed with the many CAR members I’ve met and flown with.
Good question, Dr. Wogz! Either I completely dropped the ball on this or I have forgotten what I discovered, which is equally disappointing of me. I’m sorry. I’ll pick it up again after Thanksgiving.Steve,
Any news on the Club in Rawdon QC?
Thank you Steve! What I thought, good to know..Good question, Dr. Wogz! Either I completely dropped the ball on this or I have forgotten what I discovered, which is equally disappointing of me. I’m sorry. I’ll pick it up again after Thanksgiving.
Edit: I found it in my inbox. Tripoli audited Prefectures in order to determine which were just parked. Rawdon is indeed inactive. If someone wants to revive it we can do that, but otherwise it no longer exists. I’m sorry I didn’t answer immediately.
Hey LHI live in Winnipeg, used to be keen on scale Estes stuff as a child. Been thinking of getting back into a bit of rocketry with my son. LH
