Hi All,

Here are some pictures from the 3 main projects that were debuted at Plaster Blaster 8 this past weekend in Plaster City, CA. More of the individual rockets flown will be uploaded & posted throughout the week. The project title links back to the entire set.

If you choose to use my images, all I ask is for you to give credit back to me.

Thanks & enjoy!
-Joyce

Great photos! Is it going to be possible to get or purchase hi-res versions at some point? I want to see if I can identify my rocket in the Skidmark drag race...

@ mikec, i'll be working on getting the pictures up to flickr. drop me a PM or email via this and i can send you the hi res.

btw- do you know what the final altitude the delta ii went up to? i may have missed it since i had to leave shortly after its debut to get back home at a reasonable time.
