The other two are already on the pad, the doo-Dad and the HERC-5.  Justin also brought several of his models to fly today!

It can be hard to keep the attention of a large group of pre-schoolers, but model rocketry can DO IT!

The Pheord X150 was a hit!

Justin's Avalear put in a perfect flight but wound up in a tree.  The winds were very weird here today, blowing one way at ground level and the complete opposite direction above the tree tops.

Justin's Thing-a-ma-Jig gave us another great flight!

It ALMOST landed in a tree but managed to hit the ground on the other side of the fence.  I was able to recover it after the launch.

Hard to see, but that's a Stingray on an A8-3

The Bull's Eye on a B6-4 is a great small field rocket.
p1010016.jpg (85661 bytes)
Pushing the limits of the field, Justin is able to recover it just this side of the fence.

We also had a great flight with Justin's Frick-n-Frack.  The kids just LOVED that one!

The Nantucket Sound is always a crowed pleaser.

The climax of the demo launch was the Decaffeinator.  This rocket never fails to please!

A little late on the shutter, but this was a perfect catch right near the pads.  The kids loved that too!
A special thank you to Justin for putting this together and also for helping me out on the field!

Thank you, Justin!
