The Rocket Launch

Some husbands use their leisure time to read, fish, hunt, bowl, play softball etc. My husband builds rockets. You'll see Greg pictured below holding a rocket that he recently built. Once a month (April through November), there is an opportunity for those involved in the hobby of high-powered rocketry to get together and launch their rockets. Today was that day. You'll also see a couple pictures below of Greg and his dad (Phil) walking out to the "launch pad" to prepare the rocket for launching.
It turned out to be a beautiful October day (80+ degrees, very unusual weather for October in Minnesota). It was a successful flight. The rocket went 2,238 feet into the air and then landed safely in the sod field. Many rockets were launched today, and it was an enjoyable time.
