What a great day we had flying rockets on Saturday. We had a total of 21 flyers and 38 flights. James D flew his rocket on a J500G. Dennis W had two flights with one of them being a H123 Skidmark motor. Joe I put in 3 flights. His upscale Sprite headed to the skies with a J350W. Bruce S took the NAR L2 test and passed. His flight with a J270W did not go as well because the main chute did not deploy. David W had two flights. His first flight was his NAR Level 1 cert. Mark VL managed to get in 2 flights. One of his flights spit out his 29/180 case. Then he left his electronics sled at home so he was unable to fly one of his other rockets. George M got 3 flights in the sky. He launched his “Eradicator” on a neck snapping I599N. Rob D had 3 flights. Tim S put up 2 flights. Tom L launched the Nike Smoke on the J500G. Darrell got in 2 flights. As he was looking for one of his rockets in the field, he found his rocket that he had lost from a previous launch. Allan H really got into launching with a total of 5 flights. He flew his Eclipse on a J425R. John K flew the only cluster for the day. His Nuclear Fusion went up on 4 E9-6. Kylie and Larry G together had 4 flights. They had their twin Zephyr’s on the Aerotech H550 Super Blue Thunder motors. Then we have Andrew K. The I200W man, flew his PML rocket on the I200W motor. He also took three times to light a D10 motor. Tim H launched 3 rockets with one of them the Public Enemy on a J420R. Then we go to Tim M. He had the most flight of the day with a total of 6. He also had the only two stage rocket. The lower stage had the J500G and the upper stage had an I357T. The J500G lit and up it went. At stage separation, the upper motor, the I357T did not light. But with electronics, both parachutes were deployed and both halves safely landed. We also had a new family to visit with us for the first time. They got in 3 flights with rockets with an A motor, B motor and a C motor for a total of three flights. Thanks to John K and Darrell S for being the LCO. Thanks to all the rocketeers that helped RSO all the rockets. Next launch is scheduled for August 16th. Hope to see all of you then.
