The day started out a bit sideways. There was a cricket team using part of the field when our group started to arrive. Unlike a similar incident a couple or launches ago, this group ignored the agreement reached with the Park/Rec department and the revised schedule of field use and refused to vacate the field even though they had been allowed to play until 10:30. Per the directive of the Park/Rec committee, we contacted the Acton PD to help enforce the agreed upon rules.With the field cleared, we started launching a little before 11 o'clock.
Even with the delay, we put up 269 flights, recovering most all of them. Among some of the interesting flights was Scott's Duck and Rich's water rocket. Rob and Deb fell a little short of their usual 10% of our total with only 22 launches. Bruce had a Strong showing with three of his dragon rockets and a proper Estes Dude rocket; he also kept his reputation going with a Bomarc flight and taking up a challenge from Rob for an unusual saucer design.
