Rocketfest XXI is on Sunday 15th September 2015

The time has come for our coming of age Rocketfest, but you may have to look hard to find maturity in the fliers designs since this is also the nearest Rfest to Nov 5th so one theme is Experimental rockets (still stable and non-incendiary of course).

I am planning three rockets playing tag on the flying fox, a revisit of the two jousting rockets and time permitting, the start of something big ie trying to make my BIg Flexible Rockets not quite so flexible so I can (eventually) double the height to say 70' maybe a new acronym is called for TRRs - Tall Rigidish Rockets.

I have no idea as yet what other fliers will come up with! hopefully they will post some ideas.

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 rather than chutes are good for that last few meters of recovery!

Hope to see you there!
