Flyers: 19
Flights: 45

The weather on Saturday was near perfect for flying rockets. Not long after setup the fog cleared and the skies were still and cloud free. Winds were light all day.
While a few rockets made it skyward, Sundays rain cancelled most of the flying action.
30 minutes later the sky was clear as  Casey Andre loads up his rack for the day.
Scott Kissenger and Jerry Andre assemble one of the high power pads in the fog.
First flight of the day goes to Rob Camele with his Photon Disruptor, a kit from Scott Kissenger.
The Disruptor flew to 1695' on a J270 and landed neatly behind the pits for an easy recovery.
Note the nearly perfect vertical trajectory as the Photon Disruptor ascends. Calm winds and good launch angle choice leed to this.
