Greetings from the Tampa/Hillsborough Association of Rocketry

NEW LAUNCH FIELD - MAY 2008!

THOR's Credentials and Members

THOR is affiliated with the following organizations:

National Association of Rocketry (NAR) - Section #598
Starlord's International Association of Rocketry - Star Section #1

THOR's members include members of all of the above, as well as members of other groups along with non-affiliated model rocketeers.

Launches

THOR launches on the 3rd Saturday of every month, starting at about 10:30 am.

Present at each launch are a group of interesting characters who decided to spend their very limited free time building and flying small rockets and gliders. The designs vary quite a bit, with everything from flying scale models of real space launch vehicles and missiles to rockets resembling science fiction spacecraft and even the infamous flying pyramids.

NEW LAUNCH FIELD - MAY 2008!

NEW LAUNCH FIELD!!!

Map is coming soon. Field is North of Plant City, not far from the intersection of SP 39 and Kinghts Griffin Road. Email for detailed directions.

We are on the new field with TTRA (Tampa Tripoli). The field is rented, so there are launch fees. It is currently $5 to fly low power (all day) and $10 if you want to fly high power (all day). Please keep the main gate closed and do not bother the cows. Anyone wanting to get a NAR High Power certification should email Brent to make the arrangements.

THOR has been flying since May of 1995. Despite hurricanes, fires, and floods we've only cancelled a couple of launches ever and have only deviated from the 3rd Saturday of the month twice. Please don't worry if the page doesn't have a recent date for "last updated".

Massively altered in lots of ways that will undoubtedly annoy the heck out of Manuel by Brent Wynn using Microsoft FrontPage 97 on a real computer on July 3, 1997. Updated using a real computer and a copy of notepad on April 16, 1999. Updated using a Mac by Manuel in early June 2000, but irretrievably mutated by Brent using a real computer and a copy of notepad on June 22, 2000 in ways that will annoy Manuel even more.
