Would have been a lot cooler if they fell over and went into the audience.

"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.

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

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!

965 Model Rockets Tied To Someone And Fired At Once would have made a better title

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.

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!
