Re: Bama Blastoff, who’s going?
Where exactly is the Bama Blast Off held? I spend a lot of time in Huntville in 1986 and again in 1988. It was soooo nice sharing the road with people that drive like humans as opposes to the Boston drivers here at home. Congratulations on your L2 certification. I got mine last year in Berwick, ME flying a Mad Cow Torrent on a small J motor.
Keep on flying,

Got my L2 at Bama Blastoff last year, and was interviewed by CG just moments after it came down about 50 feet from the pad. :-) That only added to the fun of the occasion.
It was great to meet CG and his lady friend at the event. Hope the Rocketry Show Crew can make it down this year as well.
Been to a few events over the years including an LDRS and a few large NAR events—honestly, Bama Blastoff was more fun than any of them. The field is great, landowners are super-nice and friendly, and the views are spectacular.
Can’t wait to go again this year. Plan to fly a lot of low-power and mid-power stuff. Just want to have fun and fly rockets. Zero pressure.
See you all there!
