To clarify, that's $10 of the $20 entry fee will go for prize money and on site 
'camping' is allowed. They are building a new Holiday in in California City 
about twenty miles away and there are many other places to stay in Mojave. We 
are still working on the details.

We will be going as part of a collective of several projects (mine a sugar 
motor...of course) but may include my Red White and Blue project (Redline to 
White Lightning to Blue Thunder sequencial motor) if I can get a good static 
test before BALLS. 
We are also planning a sort of 'competition' at FAR for a weekend in September 
(?) for those that are unable to attend BALLS for whatever reason. It looks to 
be along the lines of closest to reach 50,000' without going over the waiver, 
either experimental motors (solid, liquid, hybrid) or commercial and limited to 
the first 50 entrants (due to time constraint) and with 50% of the entry fee 
($20) going to prize money and the rest as a donation to FAR. For those of you 
not familiar with 'FAR' here is the website: 
http://www.friendsofamateurrocketry.org/  We now have improved site facilities 
(bathrooms, showers, enclosed areas for prepping rockets and are in the 
building stage for additional launch pads.

So, when is BALLS this year?  Went to the AHPRA site, and it's not listed.  
Who's planning on going, and do you have a project for the launch? Richard
