A Note About North Branch Park

Please keep in mind that the park and weather conditions dictate what we allow to fly. If the Range Safety Officer (RSO) does not feel the model can be safely flown or recovered within the park's boundries, it will not be flown regardless of the weight or impulse. If some other activity shows up and starts using the adjoining fields, the RSO will reduce impulse for all flights. So, bring some small stuff just in case. Remember, we share the park. We do not pay a fee and most of us are not a resident of that county. Rocket flying fields in New Jersey are in short supply, and we are protective of the fields we have. If you are unhappy with this limitation, then we invite you to help us in gaining legal access to privately owned, large, open fields.
