Geneseo NY
9000′ AGL Waiver

In May, downwind crops are very low or just recently planted. No lost rockets in the corn or beans! This is the must attend event at the start of the flying season- recently cut grass flying field, easy recovery, and convenient to civilization in Geneseo or Rochester.

Make your plans to attend the 20th NYPOWER. As always this launch will provide the unique experience that only NYPOWER provides. Friendly great rocketeers, huge mowed field, WWII warbirds in the air and on the ground and a great time for all.

NYPOWER is a friendly relaxed launch where micro-max’s and M motored monsters share the field. Rocket maniacs and families with kids are welcome at NYPOWER. There is really no rocket event quite like it in this regard. Our organization will have you on the pad as quickly and efficiently as possible. This is the event to attend if you want to fly fly fly!

The field is a WWII era grass airfield which is now home to the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group museum. You have a 1 mile x 1 mile recovery area and if you exceed that the staff at NYPOWER will do its best to recover your rocket for you. We have chainsaws and the biggest slingshot you’ve ever seen!

The 1 mile is just the mowed grass! then there are farm fields that in May will not be planted!

Getting some great ideas for logos, keep them coming!
We have a great T shirt set to go for this our 20th NYPOWER!
Additionally we will be having some special events, such as auctioning off some very rare Estes kits, and Geneseo's first ever night launch. (Make sure your LEDs are ready for that).
WNY'ers know how to eat, so once again we will enjoy BBQ lunches from the 3 Legged Pig.
Check out the activities and featured rockets on the NYPOWER website.
Time to get your rockets ready, as it's 2 minus 2 months to NYPOWER 20! Smile
