Rocketfest XXI is on Sunday 10th November

Apologies for the short notice, but it is time for a rocket fest before it gets too hot & dry.

The theme this one is the “Sweetie Rocket” - The idea it that fliers will make a rocket out of confectionary items or their packaging materials, think smartie tubes, Toberone etc.
The rocket watchers judge the rockets on the look/creative concept of the rocket and the flight.
The Prize is the surplus contents of the confectionary items, donated by the entrants.
The theme next time is for the “dunny roll rocket” so if you want to donate material for the fliers, do bring some along.
Please come at:

12 Noon - If you are a Flier

1 pm If you just want to watch Rockets.

First rocket flies at 1pm sharp!

Where:
If you have not been before & want to come pls send me a Personal Message - (hit the pm button at the bottom left of this post) with your email address, or send an email to rockets4u@optusnet.com.au & I will send the location details.
It’s too far ahead to have any idea about the weather, so just in case, please check back here on Sunday am in case of postponement.

You are invited to fly or watch, be warned though our 20 acre site is not exactly flat and there are a "few" trees, which one of our number specialises in finding, streamers are good!

Hope to see you there!

Motors to the fore. Let the air through the rocket. Fins are a drag. The paint is the payload.

I'll be there Ross - along with my 'chocky-rocky'. I'm confident of winning the prize this time! :-) Cheers, Karl

Bring it on Karlos you Jackal... hey, they eat everything. Chomp chomp :lol:

I wonder if Sascha will do a Chocky Chook, maybe if we revisit the theme at Easter!

Correction:
Rocketfest XXI ...
should have been Rocketfest XIX once again getting ahead of myself.
