Although the Aurora-5 didn't win this month, we felt that a special mention was warranted with regards to the design, the team that designed it and the constest that nurtured it.  This team did an incredible job in designing a model rocket to meet the needs of a specific mission.  The fact that they came very close to meeting the parameters of that mission (being off only a couple of seconds) is a testament to the work that they did.  Further, all of the teams that participated in the TARC (Team America Rocketry Challenge) deserve to be recognized for the work that they have accomplished.   Finally, the founders and sponsors of the TARC deserve their own special recognition for bringing about an event that stretches the imagination and brings science into the "sports arena", as it were.  Great job all around and congratulations to the Park Ridge Rocketeers for a job well done!
Now, THIS is a privilege.  A Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) entry!  I am thrilled to be able to post this entry.

The team has this message with their entry:

Dear Fliskits,

Here is a photo of our AURORA-4 rocket leaving the launch rod. We are entering this rocket in your May 2005 design of the month contest. We will send more photos and we also send out a packet in the mail today with drawings, photos, stickers and news articles. Thank you.

In the photo are our Prime rocket on launch rod to the right. Backup rocket on table and the Adler rocket to launch for it's 75th anniversary. Capt. James Lovell signed this rocket for us later that day! COOL.
