AYRC 2015 - Higher, faster and more impressive than ever!


As the night ebbed away, dark grey clouds filled the sky over the QRS launch site. The ground was damp from the previous nights rainfall, but the AYRC 2015 team were ready to get to work. A special guest from Western Australia, Dave Couzens, Australian Model Rocket Society Inc. (AMRS) Chancellor cleared his weary eyes with the time zone change and after a barista made coffee, was hands on with preparing the marquees, PA system and launch infrastructure.

The weather was perfect for it and 17 teams a record ! :P

The secondary school teams are getting better at it every year and there were more "safe eggs" ( rather than scrambled.... :roll: ) than ever before. :D

Great contest and some of these kids will become future members. Talking to last years winners ( this year second place) the boys told me that next year they will join the club and can't wait. 8)

It was great to be there at the 2015 AYRC, and see first hand how the team from QRS put together a program that instills a curiosity into our budding aerospace engineers of the future.

The program is now in its 7th year, and I would like to see entrants for 2016 from the various states of Australia step up to the challenge. The AMRS Executive team, will be championing the cause, with a view to getting at least two interstate teams striving to make it to the fly offs in Queensland in 2016.

If you are an AMRS member, who wants to mentor a group for 2016, send an email to info@rocketry.org.au and we will assist you with a package to use in getting started.
