This year my cadets built model rockets. It was my first time as well. To be honest, I was skeptical that they would fly. But to my amazement they did and did they ever. Last night we flew them at our last meeting of the season and it was a semi-hazy night and our little rockets flew out of sight to the naked eye. They did come back however and we flew one three times before the night was over. Something about smoke and hearing the rocket take off can excite the boy in most any man.
