As I have no signature on that last post and no identifier in my Avatar, I guess I should explain that i'm Pete Lawrence!

'twas great to see everyone at PSP12. I really enjoyed wandering around and interviewing some of you. A good audience for our impromptu tour of the night sky under total cloud too. I think it carried

@Rustmonkey don't worry! There's one at every star party, desperate to jump in and seek attention! Pete and myself are getting quite good at giving night sky guides without any actual night sky!

Sorry late comer to the thread. What pitches are left James ? I wasn't planning on booking until closer to the date.

EDIT: Sorry I meant to say where are the pitches that are available ? Is it in to the overflow field yet ? and do you have to pay if the 3rd person in the tent is 6 ?

Hi spaceboy, a couple of pitches left in Camping Field - if you want one of these you need to book pretty quickly. Otherwise we are into the Rally Field with no limit we are likely to reach.

Hi KerryAnn,

nothing yet - we're unlikely to know until end of September / early October as it will depend on how many of the seasonals have vacated and that won't be until season end for Shallow Grange.

No cancellations yet :)

As an aside, as of today the Touring and Camping Fields are both full with 60 bookings - we're onto the Rally Field only now.

This time last year we were on about 43 bookings.

Is the bottle rocket comp on again for this year ?

Yeah, baby!!!

I'm planning a three stage behemoth - I'm expecting NASA to visit to see how it's done :)

Pressure vessel must be a 1 litre plastic fizzy pop bottle (DON'T use a bottle that contained flat drinks!). You can stick other things to it but don't damage the bottle in the process...

Rockets will be propelled by filling with water to the level you want, then pumping full of air. Other propellants that become water during flight are not allowed! :)

Judging based on time aloft, elegance of flight and aesthetic appeal of the rocket before flight. The biggest difference to flight time is the amount of water used, so experiment in advance. The air is where energy is stored; the water is the reaction mass so you will need to find the right balance (ideally, the rocket will run out of energy just as the last bit if water gets chucked out).

To stop Simon upsetting all the kids again (!), we will have an under 16 and an over 16 class.

If anyone wants to bring something special, let me know. If there are enough entries, we may consider a special "open" class or just have demo flights at the end of competition if not.

Full rules will go up on the site in a bit, probably pilfered from here: http://www.sciencenc.com/event-help/bottlerocket.php (there are some good tips on there, too).
