Don't let a bit of cold weather stop you!
It's winter time; and in my part of the country, this means it is time to experiment with new rocket firework designs. A nice white flame resistant blanket covers the land, and it's too cold to go climbing, hiking or biking. Chemicals are easy to get quickly since there is no holiday rush, and the sun sets early enough for a pre-dinner show.
Getting down to it; I would like to sponsor a rocket competition.
The winner will receive a free E-match controller system! -The Angry Spark III by NichroPulse.
