This coming weekend (June 24 and 25) is the largest sport rocket launch in the southeast. Southern Thunder is a two-day annual event sponsored by three clubs, Music City Missile Club, Huntsville Area Rocketry Association, and Southern Area Rocketry. Located in Manchester, TN just off of I-24 (midway between Chattanooga and Nashville) you’ll see two days of low to high power rocketry. Everyone is welcome and spectating is FREE. If you want to fly a rocket, a day pass is available for $20, or get two days of flying for just $30. Children under 16 fly free with a paid adult. High power flyers must have proof of current membership and certification from NAR or TRA.
Facilities and vendors (both refreshments and rocketry) will be available. Registration information can be found here.
