TARC 2006

Washington County 4-H Rocketry

Our first entry into TARC resulted in a near perfect qualification score - immediately following a launch where the rocket landed in an ice cold pond in the Wisconsin spring.  At finals, the team finished 73rd, suffering from an altitude shortfall.  But the team was given the Youngest Average Aged Team award.
