SpudRoc-17 Launch Report

We had an excellent turn out for SpudRoc-17, approximately 75 people attended the launch.

What we flew

  • 24 low power- D and less 
  •  20 mid power- E-G 
  •  8 high power- H and above 

 The weather was cool, with clouds at times, and pretty, clear skies often. The big issue, however,  was the wind. It was generally above 10 mph which resulted in some serious walking. Overall, there were very few flights that were not successful -- A great day. JC did not manage to fly dozens of rockets as he had hoped, but he took and passed the Level 2 Cert test for Tripoli. Congrats JC!!

Thanks to all those who helped put this launch together.
