Hey all, this makes me sound such like a newbee... well, what rocket organizations are there besides NAR, BAR, and Tripoli? Just wondering which ones you all use, and what you all recommend for midpowered rockets.
Thanks.
 
Is there a BAR???:confused:

Never heard of it.

I are one!:D

ARSA, see my sig for a link. It has only like 4 clubs so far but it's free and numbers are for life so you might as well get in on the bottom floor. It's more for Amatuer/EX I think but all are welcome. I joined mainly as a way to make a (gasp) political statement.
 
Hmm. Not sure where I got BAR. I thought I read it somewhere on this forum.
 
Zippy you used the "P" word...:eek:

I think BAR is a sub species of the other organizations. Sounds better than "old fart with a rocket" , at 43 i'm proudly a member of the Sub species.

BAR = Born Again Rocketeer: us old farts who left and came back.
We're not an organization, we're just ornery.

Yes, but I did "gasp" first. :) I probably won't be excomunicated unless I go totally R.M.R. on you guys.
 
There's a National Bodies section in my Rocketry Links thread (which I like to plug) It's not exhaustive but it's all I found!

IMR (Germany/Austria + more) www.modellraketen.org/
NAR (US) www.nar.org
NZRA (New Zealand) www.rockets.co.nz/nzra/nzra.htm
SA Rocketry (South Africa) www.sarocketry.co.za

UKRA (UK) www.ukra.org.uk
 
Depends on where your interests lie, and which group you'll fly with more. Our local NAR section frankly does not offer much support for high-power, so I joined Tripoli. If you're interested in contests and don't foresee getting into experimental, then NAR is good. If you think EX is in your future, go with Tripoli.
