Wow...what a great two days of flying rockets, camping out & hangin' out w/good people. I think there was a touch over 400 flights between Saturday, Saturday night & Sunday. Complete slideshow can be seen HERE (http://s247.photobucket.com/albums/gg151/hounddawgracing/Rockets/GHS2009/?albumview=slideshow)
Aerotech Initiator G71-7 great boost, broken swivel on recovery. Popped fin on landing, fixed to fly on G33-7, good flight, no pic
Canadian Arrow D12-3
Estes Mean Machine Drag Race (1st Flight) F25-7 -- Mine was the only one that launched
Nekid 2x Upscale Fliskits Caution Rocket (1st Flight) D12-3

Estes Gaurdian (1st Flight) B4-4 nice whistle
Let the Caution Rocket Rip on a F39-9 -- Great Flight -- dinged corner of one fin on landing, easy fix or fly as is.
SM-3 Seahawk on a F25-7 but no flight pic. Great motor for this rocket.
Canadian Arrow into the wind on an E9-4 (cracked fin on landing :( but repairable
I also launched my Stormcaster on a D12-5, Good Flight no pic, as well as BT5 Cardstock Starship Vega A10-3T (very windy, tried nose blow only broke pod on landing retired)

hard to make up my mind on this one, which is better: the quality of your rockets, or the quality of the picutes - there are both fantastic - looks like a good few days were had.

Thanks for the compliments. I can't take credit for the photos. They were taken on a Canon EOS 20D which was set up by "AEROMOE". It was literally impossible to take a lousey shot.

Great pictures of a fun launch. It was nice to have calm launch conditions and pleasant temperatures. There was a very good night launch this year. I flew my usual high power rocket and there were several interesting designs flown. The modified Decaffeinator was a very good night launch design (slow up and slow down and very visible). The last flight of the event was a test of a half scale Patriot that the Arizona Rocket Team will be launching at Plaster Blaster as part of a Patriot battery.

:DTerry, the big Patriot...errrr, mystery rocket, is one I didn't get any shots of. Honestly, I didn't even see the flight. I was busy prepping an F24-7 motor for my SM-3 SeaHawk, which was the last flight. BTW, that was a perfect motor and delay for that rocket.

Bit of a tangle but all was well
