A mass turn out by the NSRG saw a total of 14 members over the two days. In attendance for the two days were, Angela, Pete, Brian, Mike, George, Shaun, Darren, and of course the organiser Pete Davy. Joel, his son Shaun, Richard and Tony came on Saturday only. Jan and his son came for the Sunday.
Pete had an empty workshop available, so there was plenty of room for all. A wood burning stove made it very cosy. Cunningly there was access to the shop without going outside.
Angela and Darren did their UKRA Level 2 certification flights, with Patrinot and Accusatory Finger of Suspicion, both on J350Ws. George did his UKRA Level 1 Certification flight, with a very brightly coloured PML Miranda. We're really starting to accumulate certified fliers now.
|Angela||Patrinot||J350W||UKRA L2 cert flight, deployment at apogee (45??ft). First woman to L2!|
|Brian||LOC Warlock||J350W||Another impressive flight|

|George||PML Miranda||H128W||UKRA L1 cert flight|
|George||Hawk||An excellently smooth flight of this reputedly unstable kit|
|Joel||Aerotech Aerreaux||F40-10W||Sweet. (Flown on Joel's behalf, due to his paperwork delay)|
|Joel||Estes Big Daddy||D12-5||A really nice delay coast view in the increasing gloom|
|Mike||Preying Mantis||J415W||To 5196ft|
|Mike||Interceptor I||H242||To 1349ft|
|Pete||MiniMagg||H242T||Nose cone seperation and a lost fin meant a quick circuit of the Spackington ring-road|
|Shaun||PML Bullpuppy||H128W||C'mon, we want to see it fly on an H242|
When the flying was done, thanks were made to the rocket gods, by the sacrifice of some of Brian's old rockets in an AP assisted bonfire. Cool.
