The Calgary Rocketry Associaton is:
An organization dedicated to the safe enjoyment and promotion of Model Rocketry. Our club provides the rocketry community in Calgary, and the surrounding area, safe places to launch and fly rockets, as well as experience in building rockets. The club holds monthly meetings at the Calgary Aero Space Museum during which we share construction techniques and help each other with suggestions. There are often building sessions and other classes during these meetings. We try to organize at least one model rocket launch per month, weather permitting. The members of our club are a friendly group of people who are always happy to help new rocketeers with any questions they may have. The club is open to kids and adults alike.
The CRA promotes safety first and foremost at all our launches and always follows the Canadian Association of Rocketry Model Rocket Safety Code.
