Primer and base paint coat finished. Had to use some vintage Krylon to dry fast enough. Masking now for top coat.

My rocket is built and Alex's rocket is built. Tomorrow is all in one paint and primer day and make streamer and parachutes day at the plant with Alex. I picked up a couple extra stop watches and will gather everything together Friday night. Looks like low winds from the NE like last year so that will make things interesting. Looking forward to getting things going.


See you there.

It was a perfect day for a rocket competition. We had no winds so everyone went for broke in order to win. Rookie Alex J. won first place overall with 7 points. Joe K. won second place with 4 points, and Jerome B. took 3rd place with a score of 3.5. Best model awards went to Paul K. It was fun to see all the different strategies that were employed as some worked great and others .not so great


Fun event, great people, great weather= a great day!

I could've used a spring to open my chute...
