|Welcome to NEFAR!
NEFAR is a rocketry organization that encompasses the National Association of Rocketry Section #563 and Tripoli North Florida (TRA Prefect #35).
Who is welcome? All interested rocketeers and their families. We currently hold low, mid, and high power rocket launches (A - M impulse motors) at the Clegg sod farm in Bunnell, FL. The field is FAA waivered for high power rockets flying up to 2,000', with call in for higher altitudes.

Please do not use 418mHz at NEFAR launches
If you are planning to use telemmetry at a NEFAR launch, try to avoid using the radio frequency 418 megaHertz as it is the same frequency used by our new wirless launch control system. Problems could ensue.
January Launch and Meeting Successful
A small but enthusiastic crowd made it to the sod farm and launched a good number of rockets. After which many retired to the State Street Diner for a nice lunch and productive meeting.

A sad day for NEFAR and many more.
We are very sad to inform everyone that Bill Baldwin passed away just before Christmas.
Bill was one of our original NEFAR members and attended most every launch since the club started. Bill's interest in rocketry began with his son Jacob and grew along with him. He was always eager to lend a part, a hand, and especially, a laugh. Bill served as an officer for many of those years. He is responsible as much as anyone for making NEFAR the great club that it is. He will be greatly missed.
Update 1/2/13 - Bill's funeral was on Tuesday, December 31st, 2013. He was given full military honors. From the gathering, it is obvious that many people besides us rocketeers loved him, and will continue to do so.
GRITS Winternational launch announced
Check it out. A new tradition within rocket commuting distance. Tripoli Atlanta (TARA) and Southern Area Rocketry (SOAR) have teamed up to create a 3-day regional launch starting February 21, 2014, with waivers up to 20kft and motors up to O. And it does NOT conflict with a NEFAR launch!
