There were no clustered flights, and one multi-stage flight.
There were 15 families for a total of 18 rocketeers.

Things were a bit chaotic this month due to the contest. Because of that the sport flights were not numbered.

Thanks again to our hosts, James and Tricia, for letting us use their field.
