QCRS is happy to announce that our next launch is on Saturday, January 4th. But wait, there's more! In addition to the usual 9am to 3pm-ish launch we'll adjourn to El Zarape in Mendota for an after-Christmas party. Bring your family and friends as we celebrate our diverse group of rocketing friends (and after weeks of family, who wouldn't welcome a chance to relax with rocket buddies?!). BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! We'll have two (count 'em, TWO) holiday contests...FIRST - The ever-popular Ugly Christmas Sweater contest. Dig through your drawers, your attic, your basement, your laundry... Find that UGLY, horrid, laughable Christmas sweater and show it off with pride as we all mock one another for our horrible taste in clothing.SECOND - We're taking this a step further and hosting an UGLY ROCKET CONTEST. Dig through your pile of rockets, find the ugliest, nastiest, beat-up-iest rocket and put it on display for us all to admire and bask in its ugliness. Some quick caveats - a) it must be actually flyable, safely flyable, and b) it must have a 29mm motor mount or larger. I know that you all have some rockets that qualify... I've seen them on the racks... Be proud of that monstrosity and let's celebrate it together. Rain, snow, sleet, or hail, let's get together and celebrate our shared interest. If Uncle Bob looks at you sideways over Christmas dinner when you start talking about how your last EX CATO'd or your L2 attempt pulled up a soil sample, just remember that no one here will look at you sideways. We're all already sideways with you! Bring your family, bring your friends, and let's enjoy some QCRS fun. See you there!
