Bald Moms Rock was built to raise awareness and donations for the St. Baldricks foundation, the rocket was donated to us by Pat Easter. When he bought it for us, it was a standard wildman Darkstar 4 DD, however, our urge to send it higher made us want a 75mm motor mount, Tim at Wildman then offered us the extreme wildman booster in lieu of the one we had, and we couldn't refuse. The paint job was based on the Blue Angels paint job, the reason for painting it the colors we used is as follows: To raise awareness, the 46 mommas who shave for the brave had wristbands made that said Bald Moms Rock, and they were blue. There's the blue. Gold is the color for childhood cancer awareness. The rocket has 7 gold ribbons on the side to represent the amount of children who die every day from cancer. We can't thank both Pat Easter and Tim Lehr enough for making this rocket possible.
Bald Moms Rock first flew on May, 14th 2011 for my dad's L2 flight, on a Kosdon L630 slow in almost 20 MPH winds to an altitude of roughly 6,200 feet, it had a flawless deployment and recovery, and dad's L2 was a success, aside from having to walk over a mile to get it, it was a beautiful flight! We raised a total of $51 in donation that day, less than stellar, however, at a fundraiser for St. Baldricks where Bald Moms Rock was put on display, we raised over $13,000 for childhood cancer research.
Bald Moms Rock flew once more in Hearne,TX on a CTI K740 C-Star to 4,300 feet, unfortunately there is no footage.
