The November launch saw fewer than usual rocketeers on hand. Those who chose to ignore the weather man found the weather was quite nice and took advantage of the open launch pads with 50 total flights, including 41 hobby and mid-power but only 9 High-Power flights.
The breakdown of motor use is: A – 11; B – 2; C – 9; D – 6; E – 3; F – 3; G – 7; H – 8; J – 1.

The weather for the October launch was near perfect, with temps in the mid-80s, blue skies, and winds mostly light and variable throughout the morning. Turnout was a little better than the September launch, with 93 total flights, including 19 High-Power flights and 74 hobby and mid-power. One D-Engine cluster was flown, accounting for 2 engines in the "D" class.
One High Power launch almost became a "Land Shark" when for unknown reasons it decided to take off horizontally, at a very low altitude, and in the general direction of the parking area. No damage or injuries resulted, except to the rocket, which came to earth Southeast of the parking area.
