Flying with the Scouts in
Barrington, NH June 28th!
I was invited to
join a Scout troop in Barrington, NH to fly Thing-a-ma-Jig
rockets they had built earlier. Our first such attempt
got cancelled due to rain (we have had an incredibly wet
spring and beginning to summer), so we rescheduled to the 28th
This launch came
very close to being scrubbed due to rain as well... In
the end we decided to give it a shot and everything worked out
perfectly. At about the time the kids had finished
flying all of the models, the rain began to fall lightly and
we packed up for the day.
But what a day it
was! The kids had a ball flying their Thing-a-ma-Jig
kits, and other models that were brought along. They
also enjoyed the demo flights I launched, including the
Decaffeinator, UFFO, MTTM Stinger, and more.
Many thanks go out
to Henry Burke for coordinating this program for his kids..
Thanks go out to the kids too, who put so much effort into
getting their models built and ready for flight! I
hope you enjoyed the launch as much as I did.
