​Our first build session of the new contest year will be Sunday, November 13th, from 12-5pm. It will be the tradional Kit Bash,with a surprise thrown in! Hosted by Ryan Smith, who will decide what the surprise item is that we will be challenged to incorporate into our rocket build. Bring a kit of your choice, we open them all, group the parts on a table and take turns choosing. The challenge is to build something flight worthy that doesn't look anything like the kit you brought! Join us at:
