Meeting & Launch Info

Virtual Meetings

During the pandemic, we have shifted our meetings to online sessions, still the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30. We miss the in-person camaraderie, but these Zoom calls are certainly convenient. If you wish to participate, email any member, or “info” or “director” to request the meeting link.

In-Person Meetings

When the pandemic has subsided, CORSA may return to in-person meetings at 6:30 every second Tuesday of the month at the Otterbein University Physics Department.  You must park in the visitor parking at the  Campus Center West Parking Lot or Cowan Hall Parking Lot only, see map below.  You may want to arrive early or contact us before your first visit so we can provide you a visitor parking pass.

Otterbein University Physics Department
Science Building Room 204
155 W. Main Street
Westerville, Ohio 43081

After entering the building take the stairs or elevator to the 2nd floor.  Room 204 is toward the west on the second  floor.

Meeting location map


CORSA now has two launch sites, Freedom Park in Sunbury, and Jackson Farms, near Center Village. The Jackson Farms site is available only when the fields are not planted – late fall, winter, and early spring. Our launch announcements will indicate the location we’ll use.

Freedom Park is a great site for small model rockets, accommodating up to “D” motors on calm days. Jackson Farms provides us with enough room for Mid Power (MPR) launches, up to “G” motors.

Our regular monthly launches are scheduled for the third Saturday each month, weather permitting. Any weather cancellation or postponement will be announced on this website the evening before the scheduled launch.
Bring your rocket and fly with us, or just stop by to watch! We’ll have experienced rocketeers on hand to answer questions, offer guidance, and demonstrate safe rocketry. We’ll supply the launch equipment, and might be able to offer motors for you to use. We can inspect your rocket, and help you prepare it for flight. If it needs repair, we can offer tips, and possibly even help repair it on the spot. We typically start flying at 11:00, and wrap up by about 2:00, but check our website for any schedule updates.

We are also working to secure a High Power Rocketry (HPR) launch site. If you own or know of a field with a 1,500′ radius or more of open space, at least 5 miles from any airport, contact us. We’d like the opportunity to discuss how you can help support High Power Rocketry, and the liability insurance available at no cost to the landowner.
