Tripoli Minnesota is Prefecture #45 of the Tripoli Rocketry Association.  It has launches on the second Saturday of the month from May through November, and meetings from December through April.  Launches are held on a sod farm near North Branch, MN.

Most of the rockets flown at these launches fall into the large or high power classes.  However, smaller model rockets also make an appearance.  To launch, you must either be a dues-paying member of the club, or you must pay a launch fee for the day.  (Exception - kids may fly model rockets without paying dues or fees.)  You must be a current member of Tripoli or the NAR to fly rockets with an H impulse or above.

If you like smoke, flame, and big rockets, this club could be for you.

Spectators are welcome at club launches.
