transparent_25x10.gif (830 bytes) From Keith Stewart:

Rodina plantation was the site for the Georgia leg of the Tour De Deuce. It is located about 8 miles east of Thomasville, Georgia on 300 acers of farmland/woods. The temp was in the mid 60's with a constant 5-10 mph wind out of the ESE. The skys were cloudy with rain moving in fast.

Those gathered for the launch were myself, Greg (LaneKG) of Panama City, Florida and Mark (friend and manager of Rodina Plantation) with his two son Jon Ellis and Jackson. Greg is the president of SEARS572 out of Headland, AL and drove 6 hours round trip. Thanks Greg for coming a long way to help!

With the constant wind the launch pads were angled into the wind at about 20 degrees. Both Deuce's were launched on a pair of C6-5's. First DW launch could have been the "poster child" for all rocket launches. Both engines ignited, dual smoke trails, beautiful arching flight path, chute deployment just after apogee and gentle landing. The second DW was a carbon copy of the first. Absolutely beautiful!

Soon after the launches both DW's were packed and officially handed over to Greg for the SEARS572 launch on Feb 7th. They will be the Alabama Team of the Tour De Deuce.

I'm a little sad that the Georgia leg has come and gone but I also must admit that when the second DW landed without harm relief swept over me. Thanks for the opportunity to participate. Good luck Alabama!

Keith
