4 - Level 2 Certifications to Jordan Akins, Justin Redding, Chip Reid, and Steve Ghioto.
Sincere condolences to David Tan and Hayden Yearout on certification attempts. Both rockets were very capable in my opinion and only failed due to CATO's (engine failure).
There was a total, 53 flight cards.
We had some visitors. The Ruland family from Lawerence Kansas, Scott Storey from Des Moines IA, some from Utah, and Bryan Duke came from Eads TN.
Flights of note:
Bruce Lee attempted a 15 engine C6-0 cluster unfortunately not all got lit. He is going to attempt a few hundred engine cluster at Balls.
Randy Kennedy launched J450 and K1080 engines with very nice crowd pleasing flights as usual.
Steve Ghioto had the most flights with 5, maybe more.
Dave Bauer launched a very nice Nike Hercules unfortunately not all 4 D12's lit. Great Pyramid launch too.
Kenneth Olaverria (CU Sounding Rocket Lab) Launched a L1395 pretty impressive!
SPECIAL flight by Bdale Garbee(Altus Metrum), launched his Mega Nuke on a CTI N3301. Very Impressive! See some of the pictures in the Tripoli-Colorado Facebook Group. It was launched off of Terry Lee's trailer tower.
WORLD RECORD!! Pending Tripoli Certification, Bryan Duke Launched his Vanish 24 on a CTI G150 to 10,093 feet. As near as I can tell this was over 1,000 feet higher than any previous NAR or Tripoli Record for a G engine! Congratulations Bryan!
Very amazing! It pulled 90G's! See pictures at Tripoli-Colorado Facebook Group.
Special thanks to Jon Skuba for bringing the Moto Joe Store and getting in some flights too! and Thank you George Barnes for all the great pictures and some nice flights!
I know I'm leaving some things out. Some of the founding members of Tripoli Colorado attended too. Feel free to fill in the blanks or make corrections at Tripoli-Colorado Facebook Group.
For those who are curious, the last two flights were recovered!
