Cadet Rocket Launch

5….4….3….2….1…. Blast Off !!!!!!

Cadets will be having their rocket launch on Saturday, June 1st.  But to make it a little more fun we will be camping out at our launch site. We’ll be camping at the Lucerne Dry Lake Bed near Lucerne Valley.  Come out Friday night May 31st. Plan on a drive time of about 1½ hours. If you are unable to spend the night, please drive out Saturday morning. We will begin launching between 8-9 a.m. We want to encourage all our Cadets to attend and to challenge dad, brother, grandfather, uncle to bring your rocket also and join us for both the camping and the launch. Remember to bring your ROCKET! 


From almost anywhere south of the San Bernardino Mountains, take I-10 to I-15 or I-215 north. I-15 and I-215 merge to become just I-15; I-15 then goes over the 4000+ foot Cajon Pass, and into the Mojave Desert. Just before Victorville, take the Bear Valley Road exit and head east. This will go through south Victorville and Hesperia and Apple Valley and eventually merge with CA route 18. Continue on CA-18 until you reach Lucerne Valley and the junction with CA-247. Go north on CA-.247 junction to the turnoff is about 3.8 miles, near mile marker 49. On your left will appear a dirt road if it is dark look for the lights in the middle of the lake bed.
