The only experience I had with model rockets was from a weekend at summer camp over a decade prior. I had foolishly underestimated the amount of time it takes to assemble even a simple low power rocket my vision of building all of them in a single evening was not realistic , but the next weekend I headed down to the local park with the assembled rockets, a pack of motors, and a launch pad I made out of PVC pipe. After attending a few meetings with the local NAR club, I loaded up my car and headed out to the last high power launch of the season with the intention of getting a level 1 high power rocketry certification.
