This week's update is pretty short as it was just a casual flying day for us. It was NSWRA's competition day and so we
were quite busy helping out with running the competition and processing member renewal forms. We only managed to launch
a couple of our regular rockets that both had good flights.
The comp is a altitude-duration competition that has the competitors trying to hit a particular altitude and the rocket is also timed as to how long it takes for the entire flight. 1 second of time is deducted for each foot that you are away from the target altitude whether above or below. The person with the highest score wins. This allows rockets of all sizes and motor classifications to compete against each other.
Here are some photos from the day.

This month NSWRA again had a stand at the Mac Uni AON as we have had over the past few years. This is always a great opportunity to promote the club to the public and especially to people who may be interested. We will often get a number of people coming to our launches as a result of this event and sometimes we event get people who become members. Both Paul and John came along this year and were a great help on the stand.
Here is a few photos from the night:
