In addition to the NAR contest events, we'll be having a fun event.

   *  Any rocket, any motor, any altimeter, any number of tries.
   *  No entry fee other than the $5 per day launch fee.
   *  Bring your rocket to the Safety Check after the flight and we'll note the altitude on your flight car.
   *  Prizes for 1st through 3rd.

   I think we have a couple of prizes donated, but could use at least one more.
