On Saturday August 18, The weather was cloudy with a decent wind going. Sunday was better with partial cloudy skies and less wind.
We also had a visiting boy scout troop 667. They learned how to prep their rockets. They were shown how to pack the wadding, chutes or streamers, and how to prep the engines. them they were guided through field safety and how to fill out there flight cards. I then ran them through their safety check. they then went the pads were someone else guided them at the pads.
We Had a Level 1 Cert flight this weekend by Sophia Matla. She flew a homemade model on a H123 Skidmark. The model landed in the corn field in the other side of the road. With help Sophia found her rocket after about an hour or so. Everything was intact and she receive her certification. Congratulations to her Sophia.
