Extra Extra!!


Absolutely positively prefect weather! Temps in the low 80's. Giant Saturn 5 three stage burns in. Gila Monster on 7 green motors. You should have been there! We are doing it again in '07



Balls 14, 2005 was a big rocket fest! A bit dusty of Friday but perfect on Saturday and Sunday.  I saw a rack at the away cell of an O4, P's, and a Q- All at the same time!



BALLS 03 a Success

Lots of launches, No wind, Big motors.

Lots of big ones launched. Jeff Jacobs full Q Hybrid was launched and recovered. Jim Rosson 6" O Skid mark Sparky motor. Mark Clark P motor worked great but the airframe used had stability problems. Paul Holmes Beta test flew a RATT Tribrid liquid motor. Weather could not have been better. Crowd was nearly twice the size of last year. First rocket launch on the Friday commercial day was an M, on landing the parachute draped across the pad it was launched from!
