The Tour de Deuce (TDD) project, like
everything else in life, has rules. We have worked hard to make the rules plain and
simple and hope that everyone who chooses to participate reads, understands and follows
these simple rules. It is not our intent to over complicate anything, but the Tour
de Deuce is a massive undertaking involving potentially hundreds of
model rocketeers scattered across 50 states over a 2 -3 year period. Jason and
Eugenio have assembled two Deuce's Wild! kits that are expected to fly 50 times over that
time period, be shipped 50 times and travel thousands of miles.
Reviewing, understanding and following these rules will help
to assure that these models and this project meets a timely and successful conclusion in
New Hampshire in the not too distant future. If you have signed on to participate
your electronic signature on the signup form tells us that you have read, understand and
promise to follow these rules and to further help make this project a success. If
you do not agree with these rules, please allow someone else to sign up for your state
instead. Thank you.
