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.

My dad did some stuff like this with his class before he retired. Always looked like fun!

Looks like you guys made some good rockets and had some good times!

That looks like it was fun.  Thanks for the share.  Sorry you lost your rocket though.  I hope it wasn't expensive.
