Tripoli-Colorado Has Vendors!

Tripoli-Colorado has vendors who come out to many of our launches. Please be sure to drop by and visit them when you're at a launch, and let them know how much we appreciate their support. And be sure to buy lots of stuff from them, too!

Giant Leap Rocketry

We are delighted to announce the presence of Giant Leap Rocketry at Hartsel, as represented by Joe Hinton. Joe sells reloads and hardware for many CTI and AeroTech motors. Check the Giant Leap Rocketry website to find the motors available for your project. Any motor purchases must be arranged with Joe in advance. Please contact him at (motojoe4glr (at) yahoo (dot) com) or call him at (303) 859-9728.

Cool Rocket Stuff

Cool Rocket STuffMost of you know me. We've been flying rockets together for over a decade. I'm Jon Skuba, the Chief Technical Geek for Cool Rocket Stuff. (Of course I'm the only technical geek.) Cool Rocket Stuff is my mobile rocketry supply store bringing popular products and a few unique offerings to you right where you use them. For major items, this saves you the cost of shipping while for smaller items you also have the convenience of having these products available to you in case you forget something at home or damage a critical item in an earlier flight. At Cool Rocket Stuff you can find:

  • Madcow Rocketry kits and components
  • Top Flight Recovery parachutes and chute protectors
  • Missileworks electronics
  • Ejection charge cups
  • Rail buttons
  • Kevlar shock cords
  • Centering rings and bulkheads
  • Magnelite igniters and igniter kits
  • Quest motors and kits
  • Grit Stix

Hardware products including quick-links, U-bolts, pop rivets, and nylon screws
I hope to see you at any of our great local launch ranges: TC's Hartsel site, SCORE's Hudson Ranch, or NCR's Pawnee Grasslands sites. Or you can call me at 303-817-5303.

Altus Metrum

Altus Metrum is a leading manufacturer of flight computers and other electronics used in the rocketry hobby, including GPS and radio telemetry. All are completely open hardware and open source designs. The first-ever flight of a prototype of AltusMetrum's first product TeleMetrum happened at a Tripoli Colorado launch, and Bdale Garbee and his son Robert continue to frequently attend our launches to test fly new designs. Bdale is more likely to be found flying and talking about what he and his business partner Keith Packard are working on next than selling, but is happy to save you a few dollars of shipping by delivering online orders in-person at launches in Colorado.

Next Event

NOTAM has been issued and we are go!

The only road we are allowed to use is the one between the gate and the launch site. No off road driving for recovery.

There will be a porta potty (tent type) on site. 

Fall Frenzy launch is a go for September 17-18 . It is a two day launch with COSROCS  from Colorado springs. COSROCS mostly launches on Saturday but everyone is welcome both days. 

Jon Skuba will bring the Moto Joe store. If any other vendors are coming please let me know and I'll help get the word out. 

Keep in mind while traveling that 285 is diverted due to bridge replacement  so we can expect heavier than normal traffic between Fairplay and Highway 24 along Hwy 9. 

As always there is no camping on site. There is Antero which is free, the Chaparral campground (private but reasonably priced) Eleven mile by reservation, and Motels in Fairplay.

I will be on site at 7 AM and we can launch as early as 8 AM if we are set up and ready.  

I think there will be several level 1 attempts. Probably some L2's as well. 
 
Normal altitude will be limited to 7,000 feed with windows to 14,200 feet AGL Please let me know when you arrive so we can coordinate windows with the FAA and limit the number wof window requests. I like to make it as easy for them as possible. 
 
NOTAM will be issued on Thursday and I will update then. 
 
Sparkies allowed!
