Our Fly-It, Take-It event was a huge success! S.W.A.R.M. gave out 20 rockets to kids under 12 and helped them launch them. One of the youngster's parents even requested us hosting a birthday party launch! The smiles on the kids faces were absolutely priceless. We hope we have inspired some future rocketeers.
The competitive events were a bit of a challenge with the strong winds at the launch site. The only event that was completed was Predicted Duration. Charlotte Halinaty won that one, beating her sister, Grace, and her dad (me)!
Grace, Mark, and I had a great time at the PSC competition. It was almost as windy and even colder than at the Fall Classic, but we survived and even place in several events. Grace took first place in the 1/2A Parachute Duration competition, while H-Bomb (Mark and Chris Halinaty) took first in B Altitude (Altimeter) with a flight of over 900'! Our friends at PSC were great hosts and we hope to see them in Chatham sometime soon.
