March 16, 2024 launch NO-GO

Hi all, SCORE's officers have decided that the March 16th launch will be NO-GO. This weather is really good for moisture but even if it's clear Saturday (rain is predicted), we have to be good stewards of the land and not have cars/trucks tearing up the range. Please understand this decision doesn't come lightly. We apologize for the disappointment

Gratitude Good Morning -- John Papp here.  I was not sure where to send this, but I suspect this is probably the right place. My family lost our brother on February 8th.  While he had only recently (within the past year) moved from PA to CO, he was very much into model rocketry and launched in Pueblo as often as his schedule allowed.  When he passed, he took with him all of his model rocketry knowledge re. engines and models and all the rest.  So, when we wanted to do a tribute flight for him this past [...]

Certify Level One High Power Rocketry

SCORE model rocket launch pad SCORE has a GREAT set up for launching model rockets. Estes Industries makes a line of model rocket kits to build and fly, and is the place where most budding rocketeers start. The kits are made with plastic nose cones, paper body tubes and balsa wood fins, and are easy to assemble. Model rockets, as defined by the National Association of Rocketry, are powered with motors made with black powder as the propellant and are available in “impulse ranges” from A to E. Children and adults, beginners and experts alike build and launch [...]

The Cedar Maze

SCORE has a spectacularly beautiful place to launch rockets. The area surrounding the launch site is wide open and relatively flat with few trees. Everything east of the launch site, where most of the prevailing breezes drift your rocket, is a recovery dream. Having said this, there is an area northwest and west of the launch site that can be tricky for recovery. I call it, “the cedar maze.” On a September launch day, the wind directions were variable. My rockets ended up drifting in a west-northwesterly direction right into the maze. During this visit, several Level 1 attempts were [...]
