Two months ago, my son and I decided that we would build rockets.
We found a local rocket club and made contact with them about our plans. We also invited other families with kids that may be interested along with a few of friends form NASA.
It was a hot day in a freshly mowed field here in Florida. Tent set up, donuts brought and rockets prepped for launch.
My son's rocket did 5 successful launches. Mine made one launch and won two categories, furthest in distance and first to be lost that day. Somewhere, in a high tree sits my rocket. Mongoose is his rocket and the green nosed one was mine.
Planning on returning to launch again.
