The first weekend in October is the annual Rocket Boy Festival in Coalwood, WV. This year we went since it is used as part of the Boy Scouts Wood Badge Training Weekends and was the 50th anniversary of Sputnik. Doug and I stood in lines to get his books autographed and the boys doodled around and went to the grounds where they were shooting off rockets. It was a hot hot day but was a lot of fun too.
