Another great launch day, a little warm at 31 degrees and with the usual flocks of flies but no wind. There were 33 launches for the day, a good number as January is usually a quiet launch month.

The biggest motor for the day was Ivan's rocket "L2" which flew to 4800' on a K530 Smokey Sam.

Joseph Turner achieved his L1 on his Calisto called "JAJI Aerospace" flying on an H133, congradulations Joseph. The rest of the turner clan, Mum Anna and sons Isaac & Jeremy also flew a rocket each.

Calisto's seemed to be the flavour of the day with 5 Calisto's making 6 flights. Adam flew on a G57, Joseph on a H133, Warren on an H159 and a G106, Roland on a G77 and Ole on a hugely fast IMAX 348.

David Thomson, a newcomer made his very first rocket flight with his pretty black, gold & white Loc Precision "Norad" which he flew on a G68. Jeremy made 3 water rocket flights including a 2 stage attempt. Matt flew his Viper 3 cluster rocket on 3 E20's and both Roland and Adam flew 2 stage rockets. Adam also sucessfully flew his scatch built postal rocket "Hyperion" which featured a solid wooden nose cone.

A very enjoyable morning and a great start to the launch year.
