|Welcome to NEFAR!
Who are we? We are an organization of dedicated rocketeers who have organized to make good launch opportunities available to ourselves and other responsible persons. NEFAR is is affiliated with the National Association of Rocketry (Section #563) and Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA Prefect #35).
Who can attend? All interested rocketeers, their families,and any other rocketry-friendly responsible persons may attend.
What do we do? We hold low, mid, and high power rocket launches (A - M impulse motors) at the Clegg sod farm near Bunnell, FL. The field is FAA waivered for high power rockets flying up to 2,000', with call in for "windows" to higher altitudes up to 10,000 feet.
We collaborate with a number of schools, colleges, and civic groups to facilitate and promote the use of rocketry for educational, recreational, and research purposes.
When? Our launches are on the second Saturday of each month, with two-day launches (Saturday and Sunday) in April and November. Launches usually start about 10:00am and close at 3:00pm in the winter, 5:00pm in the summer.
Where? At the Clegg Sod Farm near Bunnell, FL. See the Launch Site page for details.
How do I get started? Come to a launch! Or if you prefer, contact the webmaster or one of the NEFAR officers to discuss your rocketry interests, and how NEFAR might facilitate your rocketry plans.
We adhere to strict rules of safety and legality, and require that our guest flyers do likewise. Following the rules allows us to launch large and exciting rockets to high altitudes.

"Yard Sale" at Bunnell Blast
Well, the sod farm is a pretty big "yard," so it might not be quite full, but it will be good.

October Launch Successful.
Slightly cool, at least at first. No wind, mostly clear. Sound like a nice rocket day? It was!
A few videos are out there... no photos yet... hang in there, they will be uploaded soon.
In the meantime, check out our FaceBook page where several members have posted photos and videos.
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.
