Presidents Report 09 Sep 2007

Good to see the new guys at this launch...our membership is slowly growing.
mikeibis made a heart stopper of a flight with his Mercury Atlas! Shocked I would hate to see this beautiful vintage rocket damaged (or as Mike put it 'put back into kit form').
Also saw another excellent display of pitch/roll coupling today (I forget which rocket it was though, as long as it wasn't mine!)
Sumos Viper IV rocket with instant ignition of all 4 E9 motors with the gnarliest Wink cluster harness I have ever seen (it worked well though!). Heres a run down!

All up good wholesome family fun!
