yes, we have been bringing 2 of everything plus extra materials to every competition this year. It surprises me to see how many teams arrived with only one rocket and one parachute, only to get it stuck on a basketball hoop or something.

Since we have very conveniently ended up with our best design like 2 days before each competition, we've basically brought a good parachute and a pretty good parachute to every tournament, with 2 rockets. It's way too risky to bring just one rocket. We were doing our flight log once, and the bottom of the pressure vessel (where the bottle cap would go on) actually chipped. That rocket always went perfectly straight so it was a sad day...
