Rocketry Day

The poll is now closed, and the most popular date is the 4th of July. Football fans will be relieved to hear there is no World Cup match on this day. The start time will be 2pm. It’s a bit difficult to say exactly where we will set up as it will depend on who’s playing sports or sunbathing when we arrive, but I suggest that arrivals aim for the racecourse sculpture-thing which is opposite the main entrance of the Avenue campus of Northampton University. It’s about half-way down St George’s Avenue. We’ll have a gazebo in case of rain, so that should be visible, and if not, look for rockets.

We’ll start the barbeque towards 4pm. In order to minimise food wastage I’d suggest bringing your own food, as otherwise we’ll either run out or have too much. There’s no shops within staggering distance.

Suggested things to bring:

  • A rocket, or a bottle to make one – preferably with water in it.
  • Food for the BBQ
  • Sunscreen/raincoat
  • Friends!
  • Anything you like

See (or edit) the wiki page for further information. I’ll keep an eye on the weather, and I suggest the backup day is the 10th if the weather threatens to be horrible.
