  • Brian Elfert planned to launch "Big Yellow" on a cluster of three M1315's.  Andy Limper and David Baker assisted him in building the motors and carrying the rocket out to the rail.  Unfortunately, an electronics failure resulted in damage to the rocket before it could be launched.  Next time for sure!
