They had 2 pads and 2 lines of scouts moving through

Parents and scout leaders helped the kids get their rockets on the pad and ready to launch.

With the large crowd, the best place for me was out beyond the pads.  This afforded me the opportunity to get some great shots that included the young rocketeers!

Standing in line, waiting their turn.  You can see that the whole family was involved and included, as we see some young girls with their rockets as well!

And, of course, it fell to the parents to get the streamers repacked after the launch... LOL

Looks like a holiday themed rocket as this one reminds me of a candy cane!

The thing I love about rocket launches is that everything is looking up!

With near perfect weather we had a near perfect launch.

Rockets of every color and decoration you could imagine!

Here's a close up of one that made good use of stickers.

WHOOSH!

Scout leaders helped hold the safety key in as the kids got to launch their own rockets.

Many different rockets fill the prep table.

One more successful flight to add to the list!

Liz got to push the button on my proto Celtic Thunder model with a C6-5.  It landed a few feet from the baseball diamond.  Yep, a good day to fly!

More painting creativity seen here!  This is one of several Thing-a-ma-Jig models they flew today.

However, THIS one wound up in the trees...

Two beautiful rockets, though the red one is a bit hard to see on that red cover...

The prep table was busy all afternoon long!

And everyone got involved!  It was a great family outing and I am glad that I visited.
