NEFAR - Membership

The Northeast Florida Association of Rocketry (NEFAR) is a club committed to having both family and high powered adult events. 
Most of our launches are open to the entire family and we encourage rocketeers of all ages to participate in our exciting sport. 
We fly rockets of all sizes and types that are compliant with the Tripoli Rocketry Association rules, up to impulse level M, and up to altitudes of 10,000 feet. 
Each launch is defined as to the type of rockets than can be flown, where it will be and when on our Calendar page.


NEFAR has a FaceBook page to facilitate communication and sharing among members and officers.  
It is closed to the general public.  
New members may obtain access to this page through Jason Cook, who maintains our FaceBook account.
Non-members may be granted access, provided that they demonstrate an interest promoting rocketry are willing to abide by our rules for safety, legality, and civility.
