Default Sod Farm Triathlon in August

Here are the rules for the "Take the Stage" Triathlon on August 2, 2014


This year the triathlon will be flown with one 2 stage rocket which will be flown in all 3 events. Chad staging will not be allowed. The booster must be constructed to hold the specified motor for each event. The sustainer will contain an A impulse motor for all 3 events. The events for your rocket entry will be the following:

1. Parachute duration with an A impulse motor in the booster to an A impulse motor in the
sustainer.
2. Spot landing with a B impulse motor in the booster to an A impulse in the sustainer.
3. Streamer duration with a C impulse motor in the booster and an A impulse motor in the
sustainer.

Motors may be either Estes or Quest black powder motors. Motor adapters are allowed if you wish to use a 13mm motor in an 18mm rocket.

You must recover all the parts of your rocket after each flight. You may ask others to help you keep track of your booster and sustainer but the entire rocket must be returned in a flyable condition for your flight to count. If a part is lost you will be disqualified.

Once disqualified you are out of the rest of the competition.

Points will be awarded for the top 3 flights. 3 points for 1st place, 2 points for 2nd place, and 1 point for 3rd place. The winner of the triathlon will be the flyer with the highest total points after the 3 events.

All rockets that successfully fly in all 3 events will be judged for best rocket as voted on by all those in the contest. These rockets will be judged on workmanship and design.

There will be a prize for 1st place in the triathlon and also a prize for best successful rocket. I will be announcing the prizes shortly.

Any questions let me know.

Thanks

Dan

There has got to be some interesting background content missing here.

The spring debate is well documented here:

I initially thought I was barred from competition due to my name, but I now see you meant Ch.A.D, not Chad. I'll put a spring or two on anyway, YaY!
