    Fliskits ALPHABET RACE

    www.fliskits.com

    Although we all love to see the big rockets fly, there are a number of people that invest a lot of time and money in the smaller low power rockets and /or are not level certified, including kids. Most every launch has drag races, odd roc, altitude, etc. contests for the high power boys and girls, but the low power people are often overlooked.

    Rules

    Simple, a single flyer is required to fly a series of motors in alphabetical order A- G. TRA rules apply, including inspection and launch rod angle.

    The flyer must successfully launch the rocket, retrieve it, and bring it back to the alphabet registration table with the spent motor still inside and get their card stamped. The first one to successfully fly A - G wins.

    No more than 1 flight can be finless / tumble recovery, i.e. Stealth, Spool, or Pyramid.

    The same flyer must bring his or her rocket back every time

    The contest starts after the flyers meeting on Saturday morning and finishes?

    No more than 1 type of motor allowed per flight

    We will need a minimum of 6 preregistered flyers to participate. There is no maximum number of participants.


    Prizes

    !st Place $150 plus trophy (and bragging rights)

    2nd Place $75


    FAQ

    Who can participate: There are no age restrictions, any URRF registered flyer can participate.


    Is there an entry fee: No


    Can I fly the same rocket for multiple launches: Yes, as long as it has fins and an active recovery system. Only one flight can be a finless rocket.


    Can I use a different rocket for every launch: Yes


    What is a successful flight: The motor must ignite and the rocket leave the pad at a safe velocity as determined by TRA. The active recovery device must deploy.


    What happens if I lose my rocket: It happens, keep trying. You are not penalized for a lost rocket, other than lost time looking for it. For example, if you don't find your D powered rocket, you will need to re fly D and move on from there.

    Fliskits ALPHABET RACE

    Eric I really like that post 101 its going to be fun to see happen.

    Those printed URRF 6 rockets fly really nice. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of those in different colors.

    If your planning on camping well figure out a way to get you in. There's a little wiggle room just get ahold of me with your tent or camper size and well figure it out.

    I cant wait its almost June

    My daughter Lauren and I are going to join in the Alphabet fun. I've got a couple of the URRF rockets printed out that we'll fly in the race as well.

    I'm looking forward to the launch and good times at Country Charm!

    cheers - mark
