Saturday Fun Day!

This past Saturday, the 21st of February, 2009, the A-Mach Time Rocket Society met at the Avalon Park field for an unofficial launch event. It was a beautiful afternoon with a bright blue sky illuminating the ground. Our rocket Fire On High showed up looking spiffy in its new red paint job, while Riptide was its ever-solid blue and silver. Though it was an unofficial meeting and no data was recorded, everyone who attended the event could clearly see that the launches this past Saturday were the most successful we've had so far. Both rockets did exceptionally well, and we speculate that several of our launches, especially those of Fire On High, easily cleared the 1,000 feet mark, a milestone we had yet to achieve. The rockets kept going so high that we lost them in the clouds and could no longer see them. Twice we had thought Fire On High lost forever, only to discover it had already landed in the field not too far away from our group. Even better, both rockets held up extremely well and neither was damaged.

All in all, it was a perfect day for launching rockets. There will be a little break until our next official launch in mid-March. Until then, take care and thanks for reading!
