The "donut" is actually a common 3/8" washer with a streamer on it -
I showed one at the meeting last night, and will have one with me at
the Teeland flying nights.
Our thought was just one drop per launch (one "donut" per drop - no
"full auto" mechanisms), but if someone can get several
launches/drops in 3 minutes, we will count the closest to the target.
Does that sound good?
