Fun with rockets

Nathan Hampton shows youngsters how to pack a parachute into an Estes Rocket. Nathan and his parents taught boys and girls how to build and launch the rockets made from kits at the Custer County Fair’s Family Fun Night Aug. 2. The fun night was sponsored by the Custer County 4-H Leader’s Council. That group of volunteer 4-H leaders purchased the materials for the rocket launches and also for a stick horse rodeo at the fair. An Aug. 10 Challis Messenger story incorrectly stated the Custer County Fair Board purchased the rocket kits.

Bicyclists tour Idaho

A lone rider on the Bicycle Rides Northwest tour of Idaho crosses the bridge over the Salmon River south of town last week.

The Challis Messenger took photos of a couple of riders on the Bicycle Rides Northest tour last week and mistakenly identified them as Ride Idaho cyclists. The two groups were back in town later in the week on their return trips.
