Southern California Rocket Association Display

Members of the Southern California Rocket Association (SCRA) are displaying many of their model rockets at the Buena Park Library District. They will be on display in the lobby now through the end of February. The Buena Park Library District is located at 7150 La Palma Avenue in Buena Park.

The items on display include many types of model rockets, a launch system and pad, pictures and posters of model rockets, and a blueprint drawing of one of the first model rockets from 1957. The group has a centrally located, legal, supervised and controlled model rocket launch site serving the Los Angeles/Orange County area and they use the Lucerne Dry Lake Bed site in San Bernardino County. In addition, they also conduct model rocket building and design classes for individuals, families and youth groups. For more information please visit their web site:

The SCRA (as part of the National Association of Rocketry) is about having fun and learning more with and about sport rockets. A benefit of membership is getting together with other model rocket flyers to participate in building sessions, launches, and more.
