A bit of history

LDRS1
Mongrel at LDRS-1 in August 1982.

apple
Chris Pearson recovers his Mongrel from
an apple tree near the LDRS-1 range in 1982.
It seemed an unlikely sight so I snapped this photo!


The Mongrel has a storied history from
well before that in the late 1970's


flight
The maiden flight of the mongrel was with a
cluster of 2x CD G62, clearly visible, and
3 PJ G88's. It was optically tracked to 0.98
miles and was recovered on a 6 foot parachute.
It was spectacular and introduced NAR to the concept
of Model Rocket Technology (MRT), larger rockets now
called High Power Rocketry (HPR), to differentiate
them from Model Rockets (MR), under 1500g liftoff
and 125g propellant maximum. HPR has no such
maximums. "Big toys for big boys"-tm was born!
Photo by Tom Kolis, as are many from that era.
