History of NYPOWER and the Legendary Geneseo Field
Unfortunately, not a lot of data has been passed down threw the years but we have found this..
Over the years MARS has been involved in and Hosted many huge, ground breaking events.
3 of the NAR Annual Meet, NARAM 37,43 and 62*
5 of the NAR’s National Sport Launch, (NSL, 97, 00, 03, 12 and 18).
The field has been shared with other clubs as well, The Buffalo Rocket Society was a Tripoli prefecture that hosted many TRA Experimental “EX” launches, even an LDRS, in 2004 BRS hosted LDRS-23.
MARS first launch on the Geneseo Field was June 6/7 of 1992 when MARS hosted what was call “NYSPACE” The First NYPOWER was September 19, 1993, yes just 1 day! MARS leadership at the time had high hopes NYPOWER would be “a long serious of launches for rockets both large and small” Well it seems they got their wish.
