Glad you chimed in here Dave, I restrained my reply in an effort to stay on point, but you are absolutely correct! He is also wrong about “catching their lightweight fluffy Model Rockets as they descended gently under their parachutes”, although I at the description. I’m confident no one of authority at the NRA or TRA would ever recommend it. If his club does they should stop. And again the TRA SLP addresses this practice… E.3. Do not attempt to catch a rocket as it approaches the ground. As a section and prefecture we will almost always defer to the more restrictive rule (policy) across either code especially in matters of safety. Regardless of code E.3 makes sense a) the chute could detach from rocket as it was approached, b) a motor could still be hot and c) even under chute the rocket can still cause injury. Just ask the young man that was taken to the hospital for stitches at NSL 2016 when he was struck, across the eyebrow, by a small model rocket descending under chute. Note: This is especially important for the Sat V, the subject of the thread, with its thin plastic fins.
