IMPORTANT: The KLOUDBusters Launch Rules effective in 2024 comply with the latest Tripoli Unified Safety Code published on the Tripoli Rocketry Association web-site. More details below.

Use of "Sparky" Motors
Due to the often times dry conditions of the Rocket Pasture, the use of "Sparky" motors is not allowed. The exception to this rule is when the fields have been plowed and launches can take place off of bare dirt. We will make formal announcements when sparky motors are allowed.

That's a lot of smoke, fire, and noise!!!

First alternate date for Saturday launches will be Sunday.

All launches are conducted under the Tripoli Unified Safety Code (published version on the TRA web-site). A Model Rocket area will be available for kids and eligible adult group leaders.
KLOUDBusters Launch Rules (Latest published Tripoli Unified Safety Code in effect) All KLOUDBusters launches will be conducted under the Tripoli Unified Safety Code. All adult fliers must be members of the Tripoli Rocketry Association or the National Association of Rocketry to participate. All Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) and National Association of Rocketry (NAR) adult members may launch commercial motors to their certification level (Level 0 through Level 3) on all days. Certification attempts are allowed; KLOUDBusters supports TRA Certification; if you are a member of NAR seeking to certify you must arrange for yourself for your certification authority to be present. To launch Research propellants, flyers must be TRA members and Level 2 or 3 certified.

Youth flyers model rocket flyers under 18 years of age may participate every scheduled launch day within the designated Model Rocket area. Non-member adult sponsors and/or leaders may participate within the Model Rocket area as "named insured" participants. Youth flyers must stay within the Model Rocket area or the spectator area during all high-power activity. No youth are allowed in the high-power pad area while high-power rockets are present. The Launch Director or Launch Control Officer will announce when the high-power area is safe and model rockets may be retrieved.

If you have a Scout troop, 4-H group, home school group, class, or other youth group and are thinking about attending a KLOUDBusters launch, please read the Youth Groups FAQ page for more information about bringing your group out to the Rocket Pasture. Youth leaders -- please let our Youth Outreach Coordinator know a few weeks in advance if you're coming out to fly with KLOUDBusters.

KLOUDBusters supports these TMP activities. Youth 12-17 and their Adult Mentor should refer to the TRA TMP program guidelines here.
