    The Governor of Ohio has adopted the Centers for Disease Control’s guidance to ban gatherings of 50 or more people. The anticipated number of Ohio Cup participants combined with WSR volunteer staff puts us beyond that limit.

    Further, operations of The American Rocketry Challenge have officially been suspended. Teams have received instructions to suspend all launches and that no qualification submissions will be taken until further notice.

    In compliance with the governor’s order, TARC’s directive, and out of an abundance of caution, The Wright Stuff Rocketeers will suspend The 2020 Ohio Cup until the situation is resolved or we receive guidance to the contrary.

    Our goal from the beginning was to give our state’s TARC teams an additional opportunity to prepare yourselves to qualify for and successfully compete at the Nationals. We also wanted to see the great rockets you have designed; your ingenuity and your strategies to complete the mission are inspiring even to us seasoned rocketeers. But your health and safety are paramount, and we must do whatever we can to ensure this, whether we’re running a high-power launch or trying to avoid the effects of a pandemic. We cannot and will not compromise on safety.

    We will continue to monitor communications from TARC management. They may be able to adjust the schedule and hold the Finals, and if they do, we‘ll be ready to respond by flying our competition and submitting your qualifications.

    WSR will continue to communicate to all Ohio TARC teams as events unfold. Please stay tuned for the latest updates. And, thank you from all of us at WSR for your interest in The Ohio Cup.

    Thanks for posting this. I am not sure everyone knows the TARC current status.
