Take a look at how much fun we had at Weekend of Wonder

#2

Would have loved to be there with all you mutants. Why not plan the next one in Raleigh, tie in with Hopscotch perhaps?


#3

Yeah we need regional Boing meets.

I could possibly make it to one in Vegas.


#4

Isn’t it the one called Def Con?


#5

I was recovering from a family visit, and launching rockets, that weekend. Also dreading a job assignment change.

I suspect people who went had a lot more fun. More fun than I’ll have all year, probably.


#6

That’s completely legit. I hope you had kids around for the launches?


#7

The family was my mother and sister, and they were gone by the weekend.

There were plenty of kids, friends’ and strangers’, at the rocket launch.


#8

Next time kombucha and sour dough is on me.


#9

That’s great, I love doing sciency stuff with kids.

This a’here’s our surviving rocket. The hash marks are successful launch/recovery cycles. I’ve never had one fly this many times, so I’m a little proud.


#10

It looks like it was a blast! Congrats on a great inaugural event!

Take this shit on the road and we’ll all come out when it’s near us!


#11

I put a very old, very powerful motor (F101-16) in one of my 20+ year old veteran rockets:


The plastic fins just kind of peeled off, and the body tube kinked.

Kind of glad it fell apart that way rather than have it end up in a tree.


#12

Whoa, that ain’t kinked… That’s Kerbal Space Program comedy gold :smile:


#13

Beautiful!

Re: regional meetups - I’m convenient to NYC if anyone wants to do a little ad hoc gathering. Possibly at ComicCon? or if that is too soon, we could try to plan something for beginning of 2016 as holiday madness is upon us.
