UROC's own Clair Mills has developed a new contest for HellFire flyer's this year that should prove to be quite a challenge...

The Alphabet Contest
Due to confusion caused by too many rules last year, things are going to be simpler this time.


Select any rocket that flies on a single motor, and bring it to the contest table to be registered
Each time that rocket successfully flies* on a different letter** of motor, bring it back to the contest table to be recorded
At 4 PM on Saturday, whoever has flown their rocket on the most different letters of motor, will be declared the winner
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, with the winners picking in that order from the available prizes
The fine print:

* A successful flight means that the rocket has to completely leave the pad and be recovered in condition to fly again. The judge has complete discretion as to whether a flight is considered successful. No strapping a 1/2 A on the side of your Level 3 bird!

** A "letter" includes 1/8 A, 1/4 A, 1/2 A, A, B, C... through M
