Monroe Astronautical Rocket Society, MARS Club
MARS Rocketry is a family friendly rocketry club that flies at the National Warplane Museum airfield, just minutes from Rochester and only an hour from Buffalo, in Geneseo, NY. MARS is NAR’s oldest continually active section, and the largest rocketry club in New York state. Our launches host club members and guests flying rockets ranging in size from 1/4″A” powered Estes rockets to “N” powered monsters.
MARS is National Association of Rocketry (NAR) Section #136, all MARS launch activities are governed by the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code and the NAR High Power Safety Code. If you wish to fly “High Power” with MARS you must be a NAR or Tripoli member and be prepared to show your membership card with certification level.
Spectators are welcome and there is NO CHARGE for spectators. The Geneseo field is easy to find and is just a few miles from I-390. Bring the kids and plan to spend at least a few hours. Performance Hobbies will be in attendance at our launches- maybe you can re-kindle a past interest in rocketry! Buy a kit and come back to fly it at our next launch.
