Tripoli South Carolina will be holding their monthly launch Feb 12-13. I haven't heard of any "Big" projects flying, but it still should be a great time........

The weather looks pretty good for saturday, but I might rain some on sunday.

Not even considering the weather, I will not be able to go both days. I have lots of school work I need to do. I will make it saturday and might even try to launch my "mile high" rocket.

Well saturday was a pretty good launch. The wind was a bit more than we had hoped for, but we still put up a bunch of rockets. We even had a good number of HPR flights including a L2 attempt. I hope the rain holds out until late this afternoon for the sunday crew.

I got a few pictures..... This first one is my Bullpup launching on a I161-W with a short delay...... Nice boost, but talk about a "short" delay!!! It REAL short.... The ejection ripped 9 out of the 12 shroud lines on my chute (so I really had a streamer instead of a chute) and almost pulled out my whole "adjustable" nose weight system. The rocket came in real fast and took a hard hit, but with almost no damage.

Here is a pic of a "Hellfire". It belongs a little boy (my guess 11-12). He and his father have been coming out to fly with us for 2 or 3 months now. They bring out a bunch of LPR stuff (mostly military style) that are really well built. I hope they continue to join us. (I do need to spent more time talking to them, I only know the father's name is Bobby :eek: )

Here's Jack's L2 attempt...... Now boost and then like several other rockets, it had a VERY short delay. The high speed ejection caused a separation, failing his Cert attempt........

And finally a pic of a Deuce's Wild drag race. (well the beginning of a drag race). Me and Chuck (aka Adam Selene) have been planning this drag race for about a year now......

I missed the actual "launch" picture, but I here to tell you.... I left him standing at the starting line :D (sorry chuck, I had to say that :D) No really, I don't know what happened but he had a bad connection or something. Chuck we'll have to try it again at the 3rd annual TRF launch.......
