The Marion Model Rocket club was started around late 93 early 94. It was based at the Marion High School. Gentleman named Mike Roach was using model rocketry as part of the school curriculum and wanted to start a club for students.

The club went through the process of incorporation and was extremely successfull. Membership peaked at 54 at one point. It mainly catered for small model rockets at the time as the biggest motor could get back then was a black powder D motor.

There was an issue with insurance. While the schools insurance covered activities where students were doing model rocketry as part of the school curriculum. The schools insurance would not cover activities outside of school hours.

This is where the ARA came on-board to provide this. The club had regular launching which were mainly during summer months. They were on the school oval.

The actual school now has closed and the once great launch site near inner Adelaide has been replaced with housing developments.

To this day there are still members of this club flying model rockets with the ARA.

Have attached an old minutes of one of many meetings.

While going through archives came across some more material from the Marion Model Rocket Club days. This includes a story from the local advertiser newspaper and also the council approval for allowing the club to operate.

Hope it is of interest  icon_thumleft
