Nov: Ventions concludes VR-1 sounding rocket test efforts at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.
Sounds like an euphemism for "it failed".

The rocket looked like it was in pristine condition when I visited their shop last night. I'm not sure all the details other than something to do with a string of weather aborts, but it looks like they ended up having to cancel the test campaign before they were able to launch that particular vehicle.
