After having un-cooperative weather, the club finally got a high power and sport launch at Federal Road. With the temperature climbing to the upper 50s (F), fluctuating winds in the 10 to 12 mph range but slowly slacking off as the day wore on, and partly cloudy skies clearing later in the day, they launched 25 rockets. Mike R. made his 2000th documented flight! Johnathan E. earned the L2 with a J340M. Emilio F. earned his L2 with a crayon rocket on a J270W with recovery by Chute Release. Newcomer Jason S. earn his L1 with a LOC-IV riding atop an H100W. Two TARC teams and one university team joined in the flying fun.
