Despite very wet conditions with intermittent rain all morning, we had over a dozen members in attendance along with a small handful of spectators and it turned out to be a good day for rocketry with 31 launches for the morning.

Due to the low cloud cover and healthy winds it was predominately a LPR day with motors being — 9xA, 4xB, 7xC, 4xD, 1xE, 3xG, 2xH and 1xI.
Mark O’Donoghue launched a small fleet of spectacular shaped odd rockets including a conventional flying saucer shape, various cubes, a pyramid, a pentagon, a shuttle cock and even a toilet paper roll.
Mark Johannessen's “Big Daddy” suffered a spectacular motor CATO on an Estes E9-6 before even clearing the rod, luckily the rocket appears undamaged and will fly again!
Smallest motor for the day was Mark O’Donoghue’s “Cubit” on a 1/2 A3-4 and the largest for the day Jim Lawes’ “Katana 3” on an I303 Blue Streak.
Thanks to members who attended and helped setup / pack up despite the weather.
