De Deuce Alabama
Hosted by SEARS 572
The Southeast Alabama Rocketry Society (SEARS) hosted the Alabama stop of Tour De
Deuce at their February 7, 2004 club launch. The conditions were not the best with
winds 10 to 15 mph, but the two tour deuces had great flights. This launch was a
special treat as the TDD originators, Eugenio Cebollero and Jason Toft from the
Tampa/St. Pete area of Florida were in attendance. The field had received three
inches of rain the night before and sure enough the car that got stuck, up to the
rims, was Eugene's rental car. Also Jason was greatly relieved to see the two TDD
Deuce's were in good condition. They are his "babies" he said.
The SEARS club and guests put together a special mass launch of eleven Deuce's Wilds. Ten
of the eleven made it off the rods and it was quite a visual diplay enjoyed by all. Keith
Stewart took the perfect still photo included in this report. Likewise, Marty Wiggins
captured the launch on
The Tour De Deuce is on an a sweep of the south having stopped at Tennessee, Georgia, and
Alabama. Mississippi is the next stop. We enjoyed the company of Eugene, his Dad, Jason
and also Tim Breland of Selma Alabama who is Slim_t on The Rocketry Forum.
