November 20 2005 launch report (11/28/2005)

On Sunday, November 20, MASA held its final launch for the year on the farm fields near Buffalo/Rockford.

This was a "bonus" launch especially arranged by Mike Erpelding.  Thanks Mike!

MASA members - please send in your thoughts about the launch!

Sunday's launch could be summed up in three words: cold, muddy, and fun.

I arrived at the field a little before 11 am. We had 10 MASA members in attendance throughout the day. Mark Thell was already there when I arrived. The King and Myers families, and Glen Overby arrived later. Lee Frisvold also dropped by for a little bit to bring back the equipment I loaned him for Saturday's launch. Thank you for taking care of that launch for me Lee! Unfortunately Lee had other family commitments that day, so he couldn't stay long.

I had some good flights:
I launched my Estes NSA rocket twice, both on a B6-4.
I launched my Stomp rocket on a C6-5.
I launched my Mach 12 on a B4-4, unfortunately my elastic shock cord burned through, for a nice mud core sample.
I also launched my MASA Golly rocket on a A3-4T.

We finished flying and were packed up by 3:30 pm.  I then helped Glen look for a rocket he lost that flew over the woods to the North; but to no avail. We then retired to Culvers restuarant in Albertville for rocket talk and dinner.
