We are excited to announce the next launch of the 2024 season in Seymour, TX.




Welcome to another great launch for the 2024 season !!! 

Our next launch will be held at our field in Seymour, TX.  This will be a 2 day launch on April 27th and 28th. 

Spectators welcome!  There is no charge to come out and watch the rockets fly!  Bring a chair, shade, and something to drink (no alcohol during launch hours please).  All we ask is that you pre-register and accept our waiver.

We have made some enhancements to the launch processes in the past year so please read the information below and on the new web page that is dedicated to the Seymour field.  

The following rules will apply for our Seymour launches:


We have made some enhancements to the registration process so please read the information below and on the web page that is dedicated to the Seymour field. 

1.  Advanced Online Pre-Registration for this event is required!!  You can register online by using the registration button on the calendar event to complete the process.   

2.  The launch will be conducted on land owned by a private individual and will require all spectators and fliers to sign a liability waiver to participate.  Agreement to this waiver will be included in the online registration process. 

3.  To participate in this launch - you must be a registered national member of TRA or NAR with a currently active status. Please be prepared to present your membership card when you check in at the field.  

 

4.  As this is a 2 day launch, the launch fees will be:

Low Power: $  0.00

Students Members: $15.00

TNT Club Members: $30.00

Note: There is also a small PayPal fee applied at registration. 

Students will find that joining TNT as a Student Member prior to registering pays for itself in a single high-power launch vs. registering as a non-member.
