When you become a member of URRG, you become a part of a family. We have monthly launches, early spring through late fall, and participate in many educational events. We encourage our members to actively participate in our club projects, running for office in our annual elections, contributing to our forum, and offering services to the club in their area of expertise. We have many members comprised of men, women, children, professionals, educators, and people from many walks of life.
URRG always strives to keep membership dues as low as possible. Your dues are used to cover club’s costs to provide launches and supply our growing outreach programs. Our largest expenses are the purchase and maintenance of high tech launch equipment, on-site comfort facilities, and our ever growing youth group and outreach programs. Children always fly free at URRG launches. If you as a parent wish to fly your own model (low power) rockets or you wish to attend regularly, we ask you join as a family to help support our club.

15 low to mid power pads, 28 high power pads, 4 “Mega Weasel” pads and 2 hydraulic towers to support rockets using 1/4A though O motors (an Occasional P as well)
