Sunward Responds to Canada's Proposed Rocketry Regulations

Natural Resources Canada published a proposed update to the Explosives Act and Regulation in the Canada Gazette 1 on March 17,
2012.  The original legislation is outdated as it was written before 1920.

Public comment and feedback is invited and is available for 75 days after the publication date.  After the comments are received and
evaluated, which may result in changes, the Regulations will be published in Canada Gazette 2 and become law in early January 2013.

TARC 2012 - Team America Rocketry Challenge new rules

I have updated the TARC page with the new rules for TARC 2012.

In brief:

TARC 2011 rules update

There has been a question on how the rules are interpreted on the 15" parachutes for the 2011 competition.  A 6 sided parachute will not qualify.

A question came up on if the top of the parachute, when inflated, was larger than the bottom where the shroud lines are connected.  The answer is no.
