Great flight (single stage) on an A8-3

Our first of 2 launch demo's was well attended.  The best part was THEY could push the launch button!

The HERC-5 also on an A8-3 (we needed to keep these rockets inside a very small field!)

The kids also loved going to get the rockets.  Yep, I LOVE kids at a launch!

The kids got a kick out of the sneak peek at the Celtic Thunder

It was a chore keeping the kids behind the table!  They all wanted to creep forward bit by bit

Our second launch was a repeat of the last (pretty much) with the Cheetah.  In the background is an excited mom as we selected her daughter to push the button!

Nice shot of the Celtic Thunder!

The moment of ignition on the HERC-5

We also got the Nantucket Sound up for a great flight!

And closed with the Decaffeinator.  A big crowd pleaser!
So, that was our short set of demo launches for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua.  The kids had a ball, as did I.   Now to see if we can arrange another rocketry class!
