Plaster Blaster 2006

Octillo Desert

Have you ever wanted to do something with your kids that not only is fun but educational?  Building your own rockets is a fun way to do something together.  Nothing is more satisfying than building and/or designing your own rocket and then watching it soar into the sky.  It is easy to get started you can either go into a hobby shop or order on-line.  They have rockets that are ready to fly or beginners sets.  Once you get addicted (and you will) then they have kits for every skill level.  Or you can design and build your own.  The folks at Tripoli have meetings out at Octillo Desert (contact for exact directions) the first weekend of each month.  It is a blast.
