We're having a Death Race!
The Death Race is scheduled for the LUNAR club's February 2 launch at Snow Ranch. The Death Race will be a drag race-style mass launch of rockets flying on Estes E12 and E9 motors, so it's sure to be an exciting time!
These motors sometimes fail in spectacular ways, and while we never hope to have a cato, if it happens, you don't want to miss it! Bring your camera!
The Death Race is open to all those brave enough to bring a rocket and enter the race. You might not want to enter your most cherished rocket in the Death Race, so maybe prepare a special Death Race rocket --refurbish a damaged rocket or build a new one from holiday wrapping tubes, spare parts, or an inexpensive kit.
You may provide your own Estes E12 or E9 motor, or, while supplies last, you may select a FREE motor from a supply that has been stored for several years in a garage. (Note: This garage may have experienced some temperature cycling over the years which may make the motor less reliable than a new motor.)
There are no prizes for winning the Death Race -- survival is it's own reward! And those who do not survive receive the greatest prize of all -- GLORY!
To those about to fly, we salute you!
