Re: Bama Blastoff, who’s going?

Ok, preregistration is open who’s going?  Already got approval from the flight director think I’m going to go for L1 out there.

It’s still a few months out, but any fans or anyone from the show planning on going?

Was cool running into CG last year.

Congrats Les, definitely an enjoyable event and worth the drive from Florida. Had folks from all over the southeast, and Scott Taylor from New Orleans drove in.

Great to meet CG and Kelly yesterday at Bama Blastoff! He even interviewed me after my successful L2 flight, making an unforgettable experience even better. 

Really great field, wonderful land owners, and a terrific event but on by all. Great to see the low power pads filled all day with youngsters, experiencing the same thrill that we all did as children in this hobby. 

Several college teams showed up with amazing projects—and many earned their L1 and L2 certifications. Big rockets, spectacular CATO’s, and near picture-perfect blue October skies. 

Events like this are what make rocketry great! 

Really appreciate CG and Kelly making the long drive down South.
