Tripoli Tampa will be holding its monthly launch on Saturday, May 16th at Varn Road Ranch from 9 am to 6 pm!

Come one, come all! We’ve gotten some rain so sparky motors should be ok!
The weather is supposed to be perfect too!


We’ll have a special guest Saturday! Dennis Weimer, Vice President of Phenix Tube, manufacturer of Blue Tube, has flown in from Fort Wayne, IN to visit our monthly launch. Let’s give him a warm welcome and show him how we do things down here.

Jim Harris from Gorilla Rocket Motors will be onsite with the big guns! 38, 54 and 75 mm high power rocket motor reloads and hardware. If there’s no appeal from the ATF by then, he’ll have motors right then and there so get some stuff!

Always Ready Rocketry’s stock of Blue Tube Airframes and couplers has arrived and will have plenty there available from 29mm to 6 inch! He’s refilled his stock of AT Hobby Line G motors and is taking pre-orders for AT high power motors! He has a few Blue Phenix 2.0 kits in stock plus a large assortment of Aerotech D through G (even the 38mm Warp 9 G-339!) rocket motors and hardware, and LOC/Precision Kits too!

What’s YOUR rocket made of?

Fees: $10 per day for high power, $5 for low power, $10 for families flying low power.

We are working on a food vendor and a porta-pottie but DO NOT COUNT ON IT. We’re still new, growing and trying to get properly setup and funded to have these things so PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

There will be several Certification Attempts, as well as at least one raffle!

Vendors accept Visa/MC

See you there! Check out for more info and directions to the site!
