Default Tomorrow is my second flying day this year!

Tomorrow, CMASS will be flying in Acton, MA.
It is my second outing this year.
I can't tell you happy this makes me for this outing.
I look forward to all our outings, seeing friends, sharing rockets.
Just glorious.

So, yesterday was such a great day.
I got to introduce a young family to our hobby.
I walked them through the process of getting a rocket ready for flight.
The club provides rockets to fly and if they want they can keep the rockets they fly.
I saw one of the most exciting CATOs I have ever seen.
Complete loss of the rocket with a serious fire.
We were all worried it would spread quickly due to the dried grass we were flying on.
There was a quick response and the area was doused with water.
There were a few CATOS during our flying, but mostly some great launches.
What a great day for launch with almost perfect weather.
The breeze was almost too much to launch my fighters, so I stuck to to my trusty Baby Blue Bertha.
You can read about our launch on CMASS.ORG.

I sort of know how you feel. About 4 weeks ago I launched my first 3 rockets in 5 years. All of them built years ago, and a few LOADED years ago. Nothing bigger than a G118 Blue Streak. (two F's and the G)

Two weeks later, last weekend, I got to launch again, E impulse or less. 1/8A to E

Not all the rockets in the albums are mine.
So I know how good it can feel!!!
