RGV ROCKET CLUB

FEBRUARY 17th Launch Cancelled due to weather.

Here you will find rocketry club info, launch announcements and more.

The Rio Grande Valley (RGV)Rocket Club located in McAllen, Texas has been around since 2000.  We are dedicated to having safe, fun with Model and High Power rockets in a family friendly atmosphere.  We have monthly launches of model rockets and occasionally launch rockets with Tripoli Houston when we want to launch High Power rockets.  Along with our sister organization, RGVSTEM, we try to use hobby rocketry to reinforce the STEM education and show students how their learning can be applied in the real world.
