Anyone who has an interest in rocketry can join POTROCS. No particular rocketry skill level is required; beginner to expert or just be a supporter of POTROCS. You can live anywhere and be a member of POTROCS.[ Back to Top ]
|What are the benefits of joining the club?
You get to hang out with a group of people who share a common interest with you.We provide the launch equipment for you to fly your rockets. This eliminates the need for you to purchase a launch pad and controller. POTROCS members receive discount launch fees for flying at our special events and free launch fees for fun flies.You get access to the club e-group for sharing information. The new photo gallery section is for POTROCS members only to share pictures of their rocketry activities. The pictures can be of anything that is rocketry related; for example, parachutes, electronics, motors and rockets. The biggest benefit to the club is the sharing and learning that happens between members and the friendships which are formed.[ Back to Top ]

The simple answer is protection. Both organizations provides insurance to protect you financially should a mishap occur with your rocket. This is from the Tripoli web site: The Tripoli Rocketry Association carries General Liability Insurance covering launch events, meetings, classes, seminars and other Tripoli Sanctioned Events. This policy covers events hosted by a Tripoli Prefecture and the rocketry activities of a member. The policy covers injury and property damage to spectators, innocent bystanders, and Tripoli Members. There is no coverage for Tripoli Members who cause bodily injury or property damage to themselves as a result of their rocketry activities. Be safe, don't have unprotected rockets.
The second and most enjoyable reason is Tripoli/NAR provides certification which will allow you to fly rockets on motors with an H impulse and higher. If you are not certified by Tripoli/NAR you cannot legally purchase a motor with larger than a G or launch it. All adults who want to launch a rocket at our launches regardless of motor size must be a member of Tripoli or NAR. Children under the age of 18 may launch rockets A-G impulse during our events without being a member of Tripoli.
| Do I need to be a member of Tripoli/NAR to be a member of POTROCS?
The technical answer is no you do not need to be a member of Tripoli/NAR to join POTROCS but at this level you are only a supporter of POTROCS. If you are an adult you must be a member in good standing with Tripoli/NARto launch any rocket at any of our events regardless of motor size. If your are under the age of 18 you do not need to be a member of POTROCS or Tripoli/NAR to launch rockets up to G impulse.
