Rocket launch 2012-5

I was a perfect afternoon for launching rockets. No wind, a balmy +9C, high ceiling at the UoA Cosmodrome.
This was our 5th launch this year. Over the span of 2.5hrs we managed to squeeze in 10 launch attempts, of which 9 were successful. It appears that in one of the launch attempts ice formed on the launch rod preventing the rocket from clearing the rod.
