We enjoyed great weather, met with old friends and made some new friends
As usual there were many extreme rockets flown, an “R” hybrid, many “P” & “Q” solid motors and quite a few 2 stage rockets going for high altitudes from 100K – 300K Jim Jarvis hit 142K! We are still waiting to hear results from the other flights
The “Party on the Playa” hosted by our friends from Minnesota was awesome party, lots of great food and drink, including some of Dave’s excellent micro brewed beer!
