The next launch is Octoberfest. October 20-22, 2023 at Jean Dry Lake.
These three day events are much larger in activity than local launches and draw many more people from all over the Southwest. Many people attend from as far away as the East Coast. Rocketry activities are usually much busier than at local club launches and visitors are encouraged to be alert.
