Black Rock City Rocket Launch

You’re invited to the Black Rock City Rocket Launch in Gerlach, Nevada… rocket launch

Black Rock is a “dry” lake about 100 miles north of Reno Nevada. It’s very empty country; just about the only town nearby is the town of Gerlach.

About the Black Rock Desert

This coming September 14th, 15th, and 16th, I will be there enjoying the XPRS (Extreme Performance Rocket Ships) launch.

Its 3 days of certified motor launches with an “extreme” emphasis.

Everyday there will be a huge raffle with tons of great prizes, and on Saturday there is a Night Launch from dusk until 11:00pm. I have yet to actually make a night launch, so I’m really looking forward to this one. XPRS Shirt Shop

The Black Rock City Rocket Launch is easy to get to, but a bit tricky to find, so be sure to bring complete driving directions. Getting to Black Rock
