Ya got that right Dr.Don we'll be there we wouldnt miss it we got a room reserved and rockets to fly. It will be a blast but i wont be bringing my 4 banger fatboy still a little stability probs I need to work out
Wow - a night launch! Those don't seem to happen too often. Be sure and take plenty of pictures! I've only been to 1 night launch. It was held at NEFAR on the east coast. Jim was down for the Tour de Deuce kick-off that weekend. I did him the honor and flew my kit #11 Deuce at night with plenty of glow sticks strapped on. :D
I hope our video dudes will be catching the flights on DVD!!!
We will be flying some pretty neat stuff!!!!!!!!
Some of the guys have put together birds with LED's in the fins that far out-shine the "strapped-on-glow-stick" method!!!
I intend to send my Crayon up on at least an H motor!!!
The glowsticks can be seen for quite a long way in the dark!

Well I drove down for the Elsberry Regional Championship contest that was held in cojunction with the HPR/ sport launch. I had a lot of fun and had a chance to meet the Bowhunters and Dr. Don. Saturday was a little windy but Sunday morning was almost perfect for flying rockets! Too bad I had to leave early to make it back for work today.:(
If anyone has a chance, check out this launch site, it's HUGE!
Nice flat Mississippi River Valley. There always seems to be at least one "G" power event in the contest because of this. There was even a level 3 cert flight on Saturday!! Well worth attending!:cool:
