We had an excellent HellFire launch! The twentieth anniversary of our annual launch was perfect. We had calm weather from Thursday to Saturday. We saw many flights go over our ten thousand foot AGL level. We were also pleased to be joined by Dot Hunt and her son.
I would like to recognize and thank the people who made this years Hellfire such a success; Heather Park (our chairperson), Dave Spencer, Clair and Maureen Mills, Randall and Cathy Redd, Tim Boschert, Neal Baker, and Joe Hinton.
We had several successful certification flights, congratulations to those that acheived their level one or two certifications with NAR and Tripoli.
We made new friends and gained some remote members at HellFire 20. We had the pleasure of meeting a nice couple from Arizona, Wayne and Sharon of Phoenix who are our newest long distance members, we look forward to seeing them again at future HellFire launches.
Thanks go out to the people who joined us at the banquet and awards Presentation. Awards were awarded as follows:
New Awards and a hope fully a new tradition given out this year were.
We were pleased to have been joined by one of greats in the rocket motor industry. Gary Rosenfield gave us a very interesting presentation on how he has been involved in model and high power rocketry over the years. His pictures and lecture showed the growth and changes in the hobby.
All in all Hellfire twenty was a total and smooth success!
And we've had an incredible time here at Hellfire 20!
