Organised by: STAAR Research

The Scottish weather is legendary for its fickleness. Previous years Rocket Weekends have seen variations in the weather conditions ranging from blazing sunshine, through to something akin to tropical monsoons, without the tropics ! All we can say is that the weather conditions are generally not as bad as people seem to expect. In fact, the conditions at the 1997 and 1998 Rocket Weekends were perfect !
