Upcoming Central Florida Rocket Launches

We plan to be at the February ROCK and NEFAR launches, but we will not make it to the TTRA launch.

The Rocketry of Orlando’s Community Kids (ROCK) launch will be held Saturday, February 2, at the Barr Street entrance to the Little Econ State Forest in Oviedo, Florida [directions]. 

The Northeast Florida Association of Rocketry (NEFAR) launch will be held on Saturday, February 9, in Bunnell near Daytona Beach [directions].

The Tripoli Tampa Rocketry Association (TTRA) launch will be held on Saturday, February 16, in Plant City between Orlando and Tampa [directions].

A Month Without Rockets

We were out of town for the ROCK launch at the beginning of the month.  Even if we had been in town, the launch was scrubbed because the field was flooded.

Before we went out of town, I hurt my foot when I lost my balance while carrying some stuff downstairs from our office.  After we returned from the trip, I visited the doctor.  An x-ray showed that I had broken one or both of the bones around the joint in my big toe.

Even though it’s nothing life threatening and is unlikely to affect me once it heals, it really hurt!  And, I discovered that riding in a car for any length of time caused it to hurt even worse. So I was forced to also miss the NEFAR and TTRA launches this month.  Both launch sites are about 1 and 1/2 hours drive from our home.

I’m looking forward to the local launches in October!

JonRocket.com Goes Mobile

Look for the JonRocket.com trailer at launches in the Central Florida region.

We attend the ROCK launches in Oviedo, FL; the NEFAR launches in Bunnell, FL; and the TTRA launches in Plant City, FL. Since, we’re not able to attend all of the launches, please Contact Us if there’s something you need from us at a specfic launch.

We stock a collection of rocketry supplies including single-use motors, igniters, small parachutes, and other things you may need on-site. We don’t generally bring kits or parts to launches. Be sure to Contact Us before the launch if you’d like us to bring anything special.

We accept cash and major credit cards at launches.
