My rocket was actually a Soyuz. I'll be uploading some pics and videos from our launch to the club's Facebook page. If anyone has pics or videos of the Scouts launching, please post them--I was too busy assisting them at the pad to document any of it.

We had five entries for MTMA Kitbash Contest.  They were Bill Berger, Gary Stricker, Mark Recktenwald, John Eck, and Eric Hudnell.  Each rocket was built using only the contents of an Estes Sprint XL kit.  Then the rocket had to make a safe flight.  It was a real pleasure for me to examine the imaginative creations that these guys came up with.  Good job guys!
