This year we will use thin wall BT70 and BT80 rocket tubes for all our rockets. This will allow us to have inter-changeable parts - cargo units nose cones, and boosters. The altimeter and three eggs will be in a cargo unit and the nose cone. We will also constrain ourselves to 24mm motors of the F class. This will help use get some consistency in the motor selections.

To create the overall design and then simulate launches, we will use OpenRocket (

Here is a design from team 19-5181 (OpenRocket file, Parts Design). After flying with several different designs, all three teams have decided to use the basic design referred to as the "Pink Rocket".
