Thrusting the Throne

Saturday was an interesting day as the Michiana Rocketry club gathered in a field in Three Oaks for a day of model rocket launching. The highlight was the firing of a full sized porta-potty mounted on rocket engines. Weather was chilly but it cleared up enough for a good launch and the crowd loved it. Gotta love these unusual assignments.
