One question: Why don't they allow glues?

Is it unsafe?

Glues can weaken the plastic pressure vessel, causing it to burst when they try to pressurize it.

I think we should all first discuss the general optimal strategy for approaching this event.

Thoughts?

I’ve done bottle rockets in middle school and I did fairly well. I got a soda bottle, put three fins on the bottle equally apart, and a ping pong ball on the tip after making a cone. I’ll see what I can come up with in the east few days on me free time. This is an event that I would want to do.

Does anyone think this will ever become an event? I'm going to high school in a few years, and I'm excited to have the possibility to do bottle rocket again (I did it for 3 years straight already).
