NOTE: If anyone knows of a field that could be used for rocket club launches, please contact me directly at rocket877@aol.com with the location and owner's name and contact info.  Even a field that is available only once a year or during a particular season can be useful.  I'll do a primarily evaluation, contact the owner about access and pass on the info to the appropriate Texas rocket club officers.
