nice people and saw many amazing rockets.

The first picture says it all, my son and
I are having too much fun. The NERRF 4 flight line in the background and my
modified Sirius Rocketry Saturn V about to go up for a successful L2 cert.
flight. Second picture shows the L2 liftoff on a CTI K445 to 2692 ft.
The nearly 4 second thrust on the K was sweet. Third picture is another K445
with 4x G64's added. Soared to 3372 ft for another clean dual deployment.
The X-16 mach buster (goes up and shreds again). Korn's campground, very
nice place and people.
Can't beat the sound of a brook right next to the campsite.
Jim Flis of FlisKits Rockets
Pine Island, NY
For the first time, Paul set
up three flights himself, the new FlisKits rocket Jim
was kind enough to give to the kids, a FlisKits TOG and an SR-71.

and in flight
Despite heavy winds on Friday, flew my 4 inch LOC V2 on a Cesaroni H143-10 Smokey Sam to get my
level 1 cert. The flight to about 2000
ft. was the easy part. Recovery took an hour of walking through all
kinds of terrain, including some stinging nettles. After searching
three fields past the tree line, a farm hand whistled from two fields
farther down wind and held up my rocket.
Saturday, sent up the X-16, a LOC Weasel powered by a
Cesaroni 5 grain I540-16 White Thunder. 32oz minimum diameter rocket on a full I, going for mach 1.8 in one second.
Caught it on video, and by counting frames was able to determine that the
shred of the front half of the rocket was at 0.7 sec, which RockSim predicts
was at 550 ft and 1050 MPH.
