*** MEMBERSHIP IS FREE UNTIL WE FIND A PROPER LAUNCH SITE (after which I will send you an invoice for payment) ***
Membership to StAR is open to all adults, families and children who are interested in the hobby and/or science of rockets. We are a family oriented club that encourages activities in all aspects of the hobby, all while flying with a family friendly group!
Benefits of StAR membership include:
- Access to club launch weekends.
- Fly with our equipment – pads to support rockets using 1/2A to G motors
- Opportunity to give back by helping with TARC, the premier STEM competition in the country.
- Membership card is a name badge to wear at every launch. Easy to meet everyone in the club!
Future benefits as the club grows
StAR will always strive to keep membership dues as low as possible.
StAR greatly appreciates the support of its members and other contributors!
StAR welcomes guests to just watch the excitement or to launch with us without obligation. We do ask that if you would like to launch with us on a fairly regular basis that you join StAR .
All dues and donations go towards maintaining equipment and supporting rocketry related activities and demonstrations.
Children will always fly free at StAR launches. If you as a parent wish to fly your own rockets or you wish to attend regularly we ask that you join StAR to help support our costs.
- Senior Membership ($10) – Individuals 18 and older who are not part of a family membership.
- Junior Membership ($5) – Individuals ages 14-17 who are not part of a family membership.
- Family Membership ($15) – Immediate family members (flyer, spouse / domestic partner and children ages 14 -17).
- Educational Team Membership ($25) – For high school/college/university team built rocket launches (10 members / team max, excluding the team advisor when that person is not part of the team, as in a TARC team). Team members seeking HPR certification must join StAR at the junior or senior membership level prior to their certification attempt.
Memberships run for the calendar year.
What are the flyer’s fees? To help defray the costs associated with using a flying field, the club will recommended a donation of $5.00-$8.00 per flyer per day. Families with lots of young flyers might consider a $10.00 to $15.00 donation good. We would charge this at every launch to help pay the monthly rent to the landowners and also provide a porta-john on site. We understand that if it is your first time, and you would like to just try the club and not feel obligated to pay, that is your choice. We make it donation-based to try and not make it absolutely mandatory. However, if you become a member or just attend on a regular basis we’d like you to support us in all our efforts.
