It is with deep regret that we must announce the cancellation of Red Glare 21 that was scheduled for April 3-5, 2020. This probably should not come as a surprise. We were hoping for the best. However, Maryland has imposed restrictions limiting gatherings of no more than 10 people, closing all non-essential businesses, and restricting general activities. It is uncertain when Maryland will remove these restrictions. In addition, Tripoli has also placed restrictions around launches. We made this cancellation decision under much deliberation and decided to provide members as much notice as possible to allow you to change or cancel your personal plans around Red Glare. An email was sent to membership.
Next Launch is Red Glare 21 on April 3-5, 2020
The waiver will be adjusted as necessary depending on field conditions and wind direction
