By Sue Cook, staff reporter
KNOWLESVILLE – Doug Pratt had a booth at the Orleans County Home & Garden Show this weekend to promote the hobby of rocketry and bring awareness to his company, Pratt Hobbies, Inc.
He allowed children to press the button for launch on Sunday afternoon.
Pratt Hobbies will be at the Warbird Museum for the NYPOWER 18 event in Geneseo over Memorial Day weekend from May 24-26. Pratt said that during the NYPOWER model planes and rockets are given a chance to show off. Everyone from professionals to Boy Scout troops are given the chance to make their creations fly.
Pratt will also have a booth during the week of the 4-H fair with more opportunities for kids to build and launch their own rockets.
