CMASS - 25-October, Amesbury
This was supposed
to be our NEMROC weekend with a 2-day convention (1 day
indoors and 1 day flying out on the field). Due to all
of the hard work going into planning for NARCON 2010 the club
decided to cancel NEMROC and make this a 2-day sport fly
instead. That got knocked down to a 1 day launch when
Saturday got rained out.
It was a windy day
but that didn't diminish the spirits of many as we had about
50 people out on the field. A small launch, but loads of
fun with over 200 flights for the day. FlisKits held a
contest where you would received a raffle ticket for every
FlisKits kit flown. With 47 tickets returned that works
out to about 20%+ of the days flights being FlisKits
kits. Wow! That's simply incredible!
Congrats to Bob Harrington for holding the winning
ticket. He selected an Adfecta
as his prize.
Hot Rod Rocketry
was also present and held their own duration contest which was
going on most of the day. I don't know the results but
will report them if I find out.
I spent Saturday
at the Clay Center Observatory in Brookline, MA attending the
annual Weather Festival with a rocketry booth and build
session for beginners. It was a busy morning (9am -
noon) with 3 build sessions and a very active booth.
After that it was a relaxing afternoon while waiting for the
Sunday launch. I didn't fly too much but got some
important flights on a new proto type kit that I hope to have
ready for the holidays.
As for the
photo's, I apologize for the launch photo's. I had the
camera set for indoor use so the photo's are a bit
blue-shifted. I fixed them to a point but didn't spend
as much time as I probably should have. They still look
good though and I got some good ones :)
See you all in
about 2 weeks for our next launch!
