TCR ContestS FOR sEPTEMBER 2019
Here are the contests we have planned for Sod Blaster 2019:
Big Daddy Structural Stress Test (Friday - Saturday):
The rocket is the Estes Big Daddy there will be two divisions a modified stock and unlimited. How big a motor can your Big Daddy survive (rocket has to be flyable again, and recover safely, to place for points). A flier may enter both contests if so desired. Score equals the motor average thrust times total impulse. For example, if you successfully fly a H148R motor, your score would be 148 x 220 N-sec = 32,560 points. Need not be present to win, but prize must be picked up at one of our launches.
Mod Stock class: All parts of the Estes Big Daddy kit are required to be used, the only modifications allowed are to replace the lunch lug with rail buttons, replacing the shock cord with kevlar, and up-sizing the motor mount to 29mm (stock rings must still be used), replacing the plastic chute with a nylon chute is permitted.
Unlimited: unlike the Mod Stock class....only the nose cone is required to be used, that being said the requirements for the rocket are it must look and have the same dimensions as a stock Big Daddy.
Redline Motor Challenges (Friday – Sunday):
Most Total Newtons Flown: aggregate of total impulse of all Red motors a rocketeer flies (please make sure your motors are correctly listed on flight cards so we can get the correct total impulse from the manufacturers data).
Most Spectacular Red Flight: The most awesome Red motor powered flight (a committee will determine the winner or we may use a group vote).
Prizes to be announced at Sod Blaster.
