We had just a fantastic launch weekend. A little warm, but the winds were kind and skies clear. I took a little over 160 photos over the weekend.

Sandman attempted to launch the Tour de' Deuces for Michigan. Both cato'd in spectacular fashion. Photos are in the Sunday photo album.
There was a 21 rocket salute in tribute to 9/11 victims on Sunday at noon. The finale was Jay Calvert's "Impulse Buys" monster powered by a redline K, airstarting two I white lightnings that airstarted two H blue thunders.
There were several L1 and L2 attempts. Some successful :) , some were not :(.
I got in two flights with my Taurus clone.
Flew my Semroc Laser X
Flew the Maxi Bandit twice. The H238 kicks major butt. :D
My Lunar Patrol flew twice
I got in 3 flights with the Skydart. I wish I had timed the C6-3 flight. It hooked a thermal and I got at least two minutes.
Flew the Shuttle America once and a handful of newer kits.

Thanks EV. That's a rocket I designed for THOY that didn't make it to production before Rich Rau sold THOY to Rocket R&D. I'm working on rewriting the plans for it and giving them to Craig's BARCLONE site. It's called the Tavia. I'll probably rename it.

I acutally like the name. Especially if you would put something attached to the main body tube at the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock position. Then you'd have eight elements added to the main body, thus making the name work....
