An October is not likely due to cotton in the field. So standby for an update when we know the field is clear. Nov 3rd is the next possibility. Thanks.
The next SouthEast Alabama Rocketry Society (SEARS) launch is April 12th 2008 in Samson, AL. The event is Peep Spot Landing sponsored by Sunward Aerospace Group.
The three rocket flights that place a peep closest to a target on the field by 3 PM will draw in order, closest first, from the special Sunward prize pool. The remaining Sunward prizes will be given out by random drawing of green flight cards. The prize pool includes four Sunward kits and lots of components. You may make as many peep flights as you like and multiple peeps are allowed on one flight. Use Official Peeps of any variety. Peeps that are dropped must have a recovery device for their/our protection. Thanks to Sunward who provides high quality model rockets kits, parts, and accessories for the Rocketeer.
Standby! In a while we will have the content filled out.
