Newbies - If you are new to rocketry - WELCOME! We are the one hobby community where everyone you meet wants you to succeed, have fun and help us grow the sport.
Rocketry appeals to a wide variety of people. Some like to build them, some like to paint and decorate them, some like the challenge of flying them - I like the nasty smoke noise and flame that comes out of them when I push the button.
In this hobby I have met and made friends with Teachers, Doctors, Lawyers, Mechanics, Realtors, Truckers, Bikers, Pilots, Senators, Government Workers and even a few Astronauts - the list expands weekly.
Rocketry is an interesting hobby full of interesting folks who all enjoy getting together to have fun in the sun testing their skills.
If you can, visit a rocket launch. Rocket clubs are a fantastic way to get started. I always learn something new and find the folks there will go out of their way to help you succeed. Be safe, have fun and move on up through the levels as the only real limits are your imagination.
To find a club in your area contact the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) at www.nar.org or the TRIPOLI Rocketry Association (TRIPOLI) at www.tripoli.org for club listings and further information on the great sport of model rocketry. Consider starting a club in your area if you can. We are always looking for new flying fields and new folks to fill them. Welcome, we are happy you are here.

LOC PRECISION was founded in 1986 by Ron Schultz and his wife Debbie. Ron's passion for flying the latest biggest motors grew with the motor market from the bad old days of the mighty F power motor through the massive M power motors - one motor was never enough for Ron. Here is is in his "rocket garden" sometime around 1990. As the power increased, Ron's desire to push the limits did too. In late 2000, Ron and Deb retired and I purchased the company. My name is Barry Lynch and I share Ron's passion for the loud, noisy, smoky fun!
