Just so you know, the Day Pass ($5) and the Season Pass ($20) are used solely to pay the city/town for the field use fees. All those friendly people you see running the launch volunteer their time; before, during and after. The Food Service funds the launch equipment and maintenance, so it is true that CMASS runs on hot dogs. Please volunteer an hour of your time a couple times a year to keep the rockets flying.

 

LCO (Launch Control Officer) - Be the one who pushes the "Launch" button !

RSO (Range Safety Officer) - Examine rockets for flight worthyness and assign them to a launch pad.

Food Service - Cook hot dogs, sell food, drinks and snacks.

No Shuttle in Acton

Shuttle Driver - Give people a ride from the parking area to the launch site. Drive the CMASS Shuttle for one hour between 10AM to 5PM. Vehicle provided (Chevy HHR courtesy of Bob K) - Manual transmission, can you drive a stick shift ?
