Apollo 11 Model Rocket Celebration

A concept for NASA and space organizations to celebrate the great achievement of Apollo 11: coordinate space enthusiasts to launch model rockets at exactly 0932 EST on July 16 next year, the moment of the launch. Think of it: hundreds of thousands of launches simultaneously, tied to lessons on space? Wouldn't that be inspiring and awesome?

Great Idea. Its been over 5 years since I last launched a Estes rocket, and that was to get around fireworks restrictions. (Bottlerockets might be illegal, but there is no law against launching 20 mosquito Estes rockets accidentally loaded with black powder.) I'll try to set some time to do it.
