White Bear Lake Launch Site

Sunrise Park Middle School

This field is a public park within the city of White Bear Lake, and it is immediately adjacent to a school.  Organized athletics have first call upon this site, so launch dates need to be flexible.

This is a decent-sized flying field (roughly 1000 ft east-west, 600 ft north-south), but it's bordered on the south side by the large, flat, school roof and on the other three sides by residential areas.  Use your best recovery-system judgement; we recommend that high-flying rockets use streamers.  Please try to keep your rockets within the boundaries of the park.
