Event 02/23/02: MASA Rocket Launch at White Bear Lake

45 degrees, a bit of slushy  ground cover.  Strong winds from South.

This was the Free Rockets contest from the "Found-Parts" rocket building session at the Feb 5th meeting.

The launch was only from 9am to 11am.  I was judge for the contest and also helped some first time fliers prepare their rockets.  I forgot my bag of small motors so only launched what I had already loaded in my rockets.  (didn't really plan on flying much anyway).
