Contests at October Launch

It's safe to say that Halloween is many people's favorite holiday. This appears to be the case with Mitch. He has come up with a couple of contests for us to participate in at the UROC Launch in October (14 and 15) to get us all in the Halloween spirit.

1. Best Halloween themed/decorated rocket - Entries will be judged first. The highest ranking rocket to successfully fly safely is the winner. Mitch will be providing prizes for these contests (thanks Mitch!) Fiirst prize is two G motors. Second prize is a Quest kit.

We will also be holding a "Most Repeated Flights" Contest, basically, whoever has the most successful, safe flights with any one rocket during the October launch will win. Same prizes for this contest as for the Halloween contest (Thanks again Mitch!).

In the event that a minor wins the first in either contest, the motor will be presented to their parents or guardian.

We'd really like to thank Mitch for the donations and the great ideas for the contests and would very much like to ask everyone to participate. We've got a few weeks to go before the launch and really looking forward to some greatr competition!

This launch will be held as a two-day event if the weather is cooperative. We have permission from the BLM for overnight camping at the launch site. We invite members to camp out Saturday evening and take advantage of the great weather early on Sunday as well. This launch will be held under the Tripoli Research rules. Also be aware that only members of UROC are allowed to participate in the launch. If you are not a member you can sign up online or at the launch.

As always, we will need help running the launch, RSO, LCO, pad managers and lots of help setting up and tearing down the range. We do have a Porta Potty ordered for this launch. Set up is expected to begin around 8:00 am and we will fly in to the early afternoon or until the wind gets to be too strong and if the weather permits maybe start up some model rocketry in the evening. 

Sunday morning should prove to be some excellent flying time. The range should be set up, ready to go long before the wind catches us.

If the weather conditions for the upcoming launch deteriorate or if the fire hazard becomes too high, we will try to notify everyone via our normal modes including the website, facebook, and twitter.
