    I love model rocketry, one of the best hobbies one can have.

    This was pretty cool, but I would have liked to see bigger rockets in the mix too. These probably used A engines, like an Estes Alpha.

    What they needed were some H engines and clearance from nearby airports to launch!

    Well, if you`re going to build and launch 965 rockets on the Boy Scouts` budget, you have to go with the cheap models. Multi-stage rockets are fun, but more expensive. And engines bigger than D cause too much of an administrative headache.

    What, you set up 965 bottle rockets... and just have ONE camera on it? Huh? Where`s the slow motion replay from a different angle? And what`s with the long stupid 10-count? Just push the damn button already!

    I hope this was done for a group of 3rd graders because that wasn`t very interesting.

    "as my dad used to say"... how can there be that many nerds in one place? Oh its Cub Scouts, that explains it. This is the nearest they`ll ever get to sex so don`t be too hard on them. Best bit wasn`t the rockets firing, it was the little parachutes drifting down afterward.
