Rocketry goals review for Jul 2015

This has been a month.

  1. Level 1 certification Done that.
  2. Fly an I motor Not yet, but I’ve bought one, and the hardware.
  3. Put an entry (however pathetic) into at least four club launch contests and four club launch themes Completed the Rose-a-Roc for the August contest. Worked on the D-Region Tomahawk for the September theme/contest. Built a saucer which is mildly odd for the August theme, not that I don’t already have odd-rocs to fly.
  4. NARTREK Silver The D Region Tomahawk is also for the scale requirement. Completed the glider requirement.
  5. Complete all rockets in progress or in the build pile as of 1 Jan 2015 (see first 10 entries in table below) Completed the Sea Sting. Worked on DRT and Honest Goon.
  6. Adhere to a budget $56 ahead, most of which is because I’m counting money received for two kits I sold on eBay as unbudgeted income.
  7. Fly lots of stuff 7 flights (7 motors; 45.77 N-s) in July; 22 flights (26 motors; 560.169 N-s) for the year.
  8. Have fun Yep. The club launch had its aggravations and the Rose-a-Roc was not as much fun to build as most rockets, but I had a good time.

Victories and notable activities other than the above:

  1. Revived and flew the Lunar Eclipse Jr.
  2. Published a newsletter issue.
