Get Boosted @ Serpentine

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

Yeah sorry for the derailment Jase.
Just to wrap up:

Scoop, cheers again. I don't actually live in Serpentine, but not all that far from. Google tells me it's 1h51m from Point Peron to Williams... plus red lights, Sunday drivers and how ever many stops the little tacker(1yo) needs for a feed :roll:
I have pencilled Williams into my 2016 calendar tho, will replace with pen when I can talk the missus into it.

@Oldboy... flying? Dreamin'!
I'm only an LPR guy(for now) so I'd only be spectating.

Anyway, back to regular programming...

Hey Viking, don't just go to Williams as a spectator, Scoop does have LPR pads so take some rockets and motors along.

Not only that, but we're very kid friendly as well Viking. I've got an 11 month old who attends every launch. I hope you can make it to Williams in 2016, it will be an excellent event. Plus in the interim you can always look at the Williams launch we're having on September 19th. LPR infrastructure will be available.
