Teeniemünde Rocketry Club
History and Information
That's the area around the Southeast corner of Kansas
and the Southwest corner of Missouri. Joplin, Missouri is the largest city
in the area. Pittsburg, Kansas is the largest city on the Kansas side.
Joplin & Pittsburg are only 30 miles apart.
We have members from Southeast Kansas, Southwest Missouri,
Northwest Arkansas, and both sides of the river in Kansas City.
We fly everything from 1/2-A Modroc to High Power level-2.
Members' interests range from Estes kits all the way to Amateur/Experimental.
Founding member Ben Peters finally flys Ben's White Rocket.
What does Teeniemünde mean?
Back before the group was formally organized, Ben
remarked that--like Peenemünde--it seemed there were a lot of
crashes close to the launch site and suggested that the group
be called "Teeniemünde."
Our record of successful flights has improved considerably
from those early days.
