This year we are again having a Night Launch. The launch will begin at approximately 8:30pm. Will will only be launching A-G motors at night. Remember to fly as many lights on the rocket as possible and bring your flashlight.
For youth fliers under age 18, there will be a “Closest to the Buffalo” contest each day. We will also have a drawing for door prizes and Rocket Kits.
We will also have an ongoing drawing each day for rocket kits. We expect to give away over 40 rocket kits. Some will be ready to fly (no assembly required), some will be almost ready to fly (mostly snap together), and a few will require glue and some adult help to build, but all will be cool. The drawing is open to all children under the age of 18. Be sure to pick up your drawing ticket at the registration table. You must be present to win.
