July 2003 picnic launch report (8/4/2003)

Eatin' and rocket launchin' - what an evening!

On Saturday July 19, about 30 MASA members gathered at the VFW soccer fields near Elk River for the annual MASA summer picnic.  Setting up their own launch equipment in a relaxed misfire alley style, the first flight took to the skies a bit after 3 pm, and the last flight landed about 5:30 pm.  There were some 35 flights in all.
