X-Prize Cup (October 20-21, 2006)
This is a big event with with a big agenda of attractions and demonstrations. HPR will be represented there.
“The X PRIZE Cup will feature high-powered sounding rockets launching live on both Friday and Saturday, weather permitting. Some of these rockets are as tall as 25 feet, and are built by experimenters and rocket enthusiasts from around the country.”
Of course I think the most exciting event will be the Lunar Lander Challenge.
