This was a fantastic launch day with great weather and good company.  The little wind we had was in the most favorable direction.
  1. Twice Removed from Yesterday on an I357-10 - JLCR@300' - Nice flight. My first successful application of the Chute Release on a big rocket. The Rocketman chute packs nice and small.
  2. Yarn Cone Nonami on an E12-4 - This little rocket went off our longest rail. It still struggled on the way up. Nice flight though.
  3. Higgs Rocket on a C11-3 - Drag race with Tom and Bob. I was last but didn't lose :)
  4. Art Applewhite Ring of Fire on two E9s - Nice flight!
  5. Hat of Death on an F15-0 - I gave up on the G74 and stuffed in the BP F. It got cheers from the crowd.
