The day before the launch we loaded the van at our organisations location.
Our N31 rocket was also safely secured in the van.
The motor part of DARE's The Pyjama rocket.
Preparing the Kalinidex K90.4.3800 rocket motor of the N31.
As the rocket motor of N31 has the same diameter as the body tube of the rocket, the fins needed to be wrapped around the motor using a ring.

The upper part (nose cone, parachute and electronics compartment) of N31 remains seperated from the rocket motor with fins until just before launch.
All rockets are checked the day before the launch and they receive a label when they pass the checks.
The DARE SRP team returns from a test fit in a launch tower with their Potoo 9 rocket.
The French OWCA team was invited as guest of DARE and carry their Swegg rocket to the check.
On the day of the launch N31's upper and lower parts were matched. Peter Heeren poses with the rocket.
