Glare XII was our first major rocket launch event of
the year, though it was my 4th event overall so far! It
also marked the first event of the year featuring a FlisKits
10th Anniversary Cake!
See, 2012 will
mark our 10th full year of operation (September 16th, to be
exact), and it has become a much talked about tradition to
bring a large, delicious layer cake (from Fredericks
Pastries) to our September launch with our club, CMASS.
For our 10th anniversary we felt it fitting to bring such a
cake to ALL of the major rocketry events we will be attending
Next up will be NSL,
then NERRF, LDRS and NARAM to be
concluded with final cake during our anniversary launch with
CMASS in September in Amesbury, MA.
Red Glare was a
great deal of fun. The weather cooperated far more than
the forecasters predictions and a slow start on Friday lead to
a very active Saturday and, overall, a wonderful weekend.
The photo album on
the left represents but a fraction of the activities of the
weekend. If you see your rocket (or yourself), drop me a
line and give me some information and I will update the
comments with the photo. If you would like a copy of the
photo, just let me know and I will send along the hi-res
