Tripoli Rocketry Association

Prefecture #5 San Diego

Established 1988

Ocotillo Test Site

Actually Coyote Wells Test Site

NOTE! This site is no longer current. In the tradition of the old internet, old sites just seem to hang around for nostalgia sake. The orginal TRA Prefecture #5 was founded by Joy and Brian Tripp (Prefect), Ray Dunakin, and Mike Tripp (FAA Waiver Holder) and was mentored by California Class 2 Licensed Pyrotechnicians. The club was taken over by a group of DART members around the turn of the century. Please visit their new web page about their new launch location and events at Tripoli-San Diego

Most of these pictures were taken with a Sony MAVICA MVC-FD7. Not bad for VGA.
