New Contest!

JMRC will be hosting another Iron-man contest similar to the
 wildly successful 1/2A Iron-man held last summer. Steve
 Kristal and I will be co-contest directors. Steve is
 providing the motors and some of the prizes. I will also be
 providing some prizes. This contest will be flown at the
 April JMRC monthly launch.

 RULZ

 The Vehicle
 ONE rocket that is 2-staged and capable of flying a NAR
 approved altimeter shall be used for ALL flights

 The Propulsion
 Booster: 13mm Estes Diamond pak A10-0
 Sustainer: 13mm Centuri 1/2A4-5M

 The Events
 Spot Landing - Distance measured from the tip of the nose
 cone to the spot. The nose cone must be attached to the rest
 of the upper stage. The booster is not measured and is the
 only allowable part to separate.

 Streamer Duration - Time measured from lift-off until the
 upper stage lands or the timers lose sight. The only
 allowable part to separate is the booster. Otherwise
 standard streamer rules apply.

 Altimeter Altitude - Height as measured by a NAR approved
 altimeter. The only allowable part to separate is the
 booster. Note – there are no certified altimeters that fit
 in a 13mm tube.

 All three flights must be made by the same model (hence the
 name IRON-MAN) in the same configuration. Whatever
 provisions made for the altimeter must be a part of the
 rocket for all flights. The altimeter ONLY needs to be flown
 in the altitude event.

 Since these paks contain 4 motors we are allowing
 contestants to make a second flight for Streamer Duration OR
 Altimeter Altitude. Not Spot Landing

 We are also adding a 4th event, Fan Favorite as an incentive
 to make you entry look nice and or interesting.

 Shoot me any questions you may have.
