What is a Fun-Test?
A Fun-Test is a model rocket flying contest flown for fun. It is a good intruduction for anyone new to competition and good practice for competition veterens. Fun-Tests don't count towards NAR competition points but are judged just like official competition events and there are prizes for the winners. Contestants are divided into two age groups, up to 14 and 15 and over.
What are the Events?
We have chosen the first two Fun-Test events for the 2000 flying season. They are fairly challenging events this time around but everyone is encouraged to fly even if they don't think they'll win. Remember, it's just for fun!
April - 1/2A Rocket Glider
May - 1/2A Flex-wing Glider
