Deuce Booster
By: Jim Myers
AKA SwingWing
AKA Gingerdawgdawg

The attached Is my Deuce Booster entry to the Deuce Bash contest. It is my two stage, gap-staged version of the Deuces Wild! It was originally submitted to the Fliskits DOM October 2003, where it won Special Mention.

The Deuce Booster has flown many times, including at the Minnesota leg of the Tour de Deuce. It is a fun rocket, combining the dual smoke trail boost of the Deuces Wild! with the complexity of a gap-staged and clustered design.
