Most enjoyable launch every. TCC set a new standard for organization of a launch. Lots of flights, lots of vendors, and fun events i.e. drag races, rock bands, night flights, banquet.

Weather was sunny and warn with wind ranging from dead calm to pop up bending gusts.

Flyers from all over US, think I hear a flyer from South America.

Several launches for me - all successful, no lost rockets. Two 2 stage flights - Nike Apache and Wild Ride my Wildman Jr Two stage. Lots of sparky motors.

Great report which could have been posted as a national or even international event.
