So California Launches

There are several clubs in Southern California that offer scheduled launches during the year:
AIAA OC Rocketry (NAR #718 – this club) usually launches with ROC, DART, SCRA, and Tripoli San Diego – but we occasionally travel further if needed for deadlines and weather
ROC – Rocketry Organization of California Launches at Lucerne Dry Lake (low and high power welcome)
SCRA – Southern California Rocketry Association Launches at Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area (up to a “G” motor) and Lucerne Dry Lake
TRG – Temecula Rocketry Group Launches in the Temecula area (smaller motors depending upon field used)
D.A.R.T. Rocketry Launches at Fiesta Island near San Diego (up to a “G” motor)
Tripoli San Diego Launches near Plaster City (low and high power welcome) – no launches in July and August due to the heat

And a few clubs a little further away:

Sacramento Area Rocketry Group (SARG) launches north of Sacramento
