Spaceport America and ESRA Joint Statement Regarding Spaceport America Cup 2020 and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Many teams have been asking about Spaceport America Cup 2020 and the effects of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. We are aware that many teams across the world are impacted by school closures, travel restrictions, and other precautions to limit the spread of this virus. Spaceport America and the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA) continue to monitor events with respect to the outbreak.
At this time, we are not cancelling the Spaceport America Cup competition; however, we are meeting weekly to discuss and take appropriate actions as global events unfold. Please see the linked press release and we will post updates if the competition is affected.
To all teams ordering motors through Animal Motor Works (AMW), you must submit your order before February 1st to have guaranteed delivery at the SA Cup Event. Please note that other motor distributors will have similar deadlines. So order your motors ASAP if you have not already.
The Experimental Sounding Rocket Association and the Spaceport America Cup Team are pleased to announce the selection of Animal Motor Works as our Primary Rocketry Vendor. Animal Motor Works team members will be onsite throughout the 2018 Spaceport America Cup with their impressive lineup of motors, rocket parts, electronics, building supplies and expertise to ensure our teams have the best opportunity for having a successful launch.
