Is there someone out there who went to NARAM and can explain how the "fun" event worked where they used saucer-rockets? What were the rules? What was the goal? What kind of results did they get?

Anybody????

Flying saucer duration fun event had only a couple rules, they had to fly on C motors and the timeing was from first motion to touch down. I believe George Gassaway won with 30 some seconds with a styrofaom bowl saucer. I got about 17seconds with an all paper centuri saucer "flying purple people eater" see below:D
it was a fun event.. note all size artapple white sauces averaged about 10seconds;)
