It's official! The 100th Montgomery County fair has launched. Aerospace and rocket launch is always a popular start to the launch the fair off.   The rockets are judged by construction, ability to launch and over all flight. The goal is to launch the rockets and try to judge the wind to get the rocket as close to marker flags as possible. Pictured: Gerald Hutson  looks at the marker flag and tries to make sure his rocket is lined up correctly while his dad Greg Hutson checks the connections to make sure the rocket will take off properly.  They estimated this rocket took about seven hours to build.
