Here is my submission for the Rocket - Sand - Start and Operate a Batch Box Rocket BB.

As the SkIP event winds down, I headed to Cooper Cabin to light the rocket batch box there.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:

       o pic of starting materials, PROPERLY placed in the batch box before fire
       o pic of fire started to warm the riser - at the back (left) of the batch box
       o pic of additional wood added
       o pic of even more wood added
