The Tri-Cities Rocketeers hosted their annual June Swoosh multi-day launch on June 16-18, 2017. Windy weather on Friday prevented much flying, but Saturday and Sunday brought beautiful weather with mostly sunny skies and little to no wind. Combined with TCR's amazing sod farm flying field, this made for an incredible weekend flying rockets of all sizes. Everyone was able to get as much flying in as they wanted with little to no wait for a pad, and there were many great flights with just a few failures over the weekend. Unfortunately I missed the three successful cert flights (an L1 and two L2s), but I did manage to catch a number of notably cool flights.
Thanks to TCR for hosting such a great launch. Another big thanks to the vendors who showed up and took my money for more motors, including the H210R I purchased on Sunday when I realized the weather conditions were perfect to try for a personal best. I smashed my old record with a flight to 3,900 feet even, using my Madcow Mini Frenzy in what turned out to be the grand finale launch of the weekend. See you next time at the sod farm!
