ROCtober time again!

It is time again for ROC (Rocketry Organization of California) to have it's annual ROCtober rocket launch October 14-15 2017 at Lucerne Dry Lake Bed in Southern California. Last year we launched over 1,600 rockets during the weekend, day and night!

This is a fun event specifically focused on youth groups. Rocket Launching begins Saturday Morning and includes night Lunches Saturday night. Sunday launching begins in the morning and ends at noon. A flyer is attached with the details. Camping is encouraged on the lake bed Saturday night. This year we are going to have a night rocket contest plus a special program for obtaining a Jr. Level 1 certification from NAR.

Over the past 9 years of ROCtober, we have launched over 10,000 rockets. Look on ROC website for more details. If you are interested in attending, please send your group information from the form at

Please contact me if you have any questions,

ROCtober 2017 was a great success, 1,959 total rockets launched from 8am Saturday until 12:00 Sunday. Anyone know of a bigger launch?
