Coyote Rocketry October Contest

At the upcoming October Mill Springs and Dawsonville/Ball Ground launches, Coyote Rocketry will be sponsoring two contests that anyone can enter. You don’t even have to fly a rocket! You simply have to be at the launch and enter the contest before Keith flies the rockets.

The first contest is Predicted Duration. A model rocket will be displayed at the Coyote Rocketry tent, and its recovery system and motor selection will be determined at the beginning of the launch.

Each participant will be able to view the model and recovery system before the flight and make their best guess. Your job is to predict the duration of the flight from liftoff to landing. The rocket will be flown at noon. Whoever is closest to the actual time will be declared the winner.

The second contest is Predicted Altitude. A model rocket will be displayed at the Coyote Rocketry tent, and its motor selection will be determined at the beginning of the launch. It will be flown at Noon. The model will be flown again with a different motor at 2PM.

Each participant will be able to view the model and engine selection before the flights and make their best guess. Your job is to predict the altitude which will be detected by an Estes Altimeter. After the model is flown, whoever is closest to the recorded altitude will be declared the winner.

Prizes will be determined by Keith.
