I found a link to the last fall's Cub Scouts launch event.Launch?
Is one launchpad+controller enough for a group of nine? I've seen photos of scouting launch events that had 4 or more launch rods set up, but I think they were always for larger groups. I do have a second launchpad, but not a second controller — though I've got most of the parts on hand to build one.
That day we had launched 37 rockets at least once on B6-4's, using two launch pads.
Anyone who wanted to launch again was encouraged to do so. Many flew again on C6's, C5's, and Q-Jet D16's, at the risk of not getting the rockets back. About a dozen kids wanted "to go higher".
Some gave their rockets to friends and siblings, who "flew" them as their own.
Two kids showed up having either damaged or forgotten their rockets. I gave them mine to fly (bring spares!), and they were happy.
Video was shot from a drone and edited by one of the Scouts. It may give you ideas about event-day logistics:
