In 1977, Estes' Model Rocket
News (MRN) requested entries for a photo contest. One winter afternoon, my
friend Kenny and I pooled our money for a single roll of film, took 24 pictures
of our rockets, and once they were developed, sent in our favorites.
Kenny's picture was featured in the newsletter (I'm in the
list down in the corner).
Here's my winning entry - and a
few of the other shots we took that day.
As a special bonus, we each
received a congratulatory letter from the man himself, Vern Estes.
