Rocket Contest Day

Today we had the first half of a rocket contest at the Michigan Farmer's Hall of Fame. It was suppose to be the second half, but yesterday was postponed until June 6. Unless, of course, yesterday was postponed until today and today was postponed until June 6. Which means today never happened.

peteralway and I flew one flight in all four events D dual eggloft duration, 1/2A parachute duration, B rocket glider, and 1/8 helicopter duration. We are allowed as least one more flight in each event. All of our flights qualified.

Our most amusing model was a "Tasmanian Devil" helicopter model made from a miniature Saturn V and popsicle sticks. It flew for about 3 seconds.
