Northwest Manitoba Checking In...

Postby sputnik57 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 8:58 pm

Hi! I just built a water rocket and launcher for my wife's physics class yesterday. We launched last night. It was terrific! It just disappeared into the sky. So I thought I'd check in here and see what you have to offer? I'm an old guy, with a farm and a workshop. I can see myself getting carried away already. Is there a BRA? (Bottle Rockets Anonymous) just in case? :D

Anyway, it's good to be here...

Welcome. I envy you living on a farm. Where I am (California SF Bay Area) it is hard to find any open space where you can be confident of recovering your rocket without it getting stuck in a tree or landing on top of a building. I have to travel a fair distance.
