Phil and All
Thanks for the kind words! We're obviously quite happy, too........although the
enormity of the project is beginning to hit home:-)! We're going to try to put
on the best LDRS we can and we're going to need a lot of help. We've already
gotten committments from a bunch of our East Coast friends but any who want to
help out ......are MORE than welcome. More info will follow as we firm things
up. Again...thanks for the kind words.....
Hey I thought the tetrahydron flew at LDRS 2000 in Orangeburg on a
skidmark motor? Or did I just dream about stomping out the small
grassfires around the pad? ;)
No return tag needed on that rocket. Can't wait to see it fly again.
Hot Damn! Congratulations BRS!!! I'm sure that I can scare up enough MI
Team 1 members to help out on the range AND bring some interesting
projects. Personally, I'll either be bringing a GF Clock or the return
of the FTBOD. I'm already psyched......

And from the ashes at NYPOWER2001, the FTBOD may also make an
appearance. Hum, Flying Tetrahedron of Death meets Flying Traffic
Barrel of Death....stay tuned....the saga continues. ;-)

As soon as you get the dates firmed up send me an email. I
want to get my vacation time posted on the books. Right now
I plan on being available for slave labor, two to three days
prior to day one and maybe a couple of days after. Let me
know if there is anything you need we (MDRA) may be able to

Missed ya guys this year but will make up for it next year ;-)
And next year we will be in the new and improved trailer with new solar
panels and a nice hefty invertor.
Fortunatly I was counting on you guys getting it and have planned some nice
Good luck and if ya need call on the BRG, we are always glad to help.
We definately will need and appreciate your help! The heat lamps will make
those Westerners feel right at home so bring them along! Just make sure you
bring enough sand for the field AND to fill your nose cone (don't forget the
concrete:-). I want to see at least 3 calibers of stability, this time, on that
black rocket of yours:-)! Talk to you soon.
We'd love the help and thanks for the offer! We will probably be trying to set
up range schedules so a group can run a half a day or a day. We'll let you know
when we have things more in hand.
As to the FTBOD........Bring it on up! I'd love to see it fly again. Repeat
after me. I WILL use West Systems, I WILL use West Systems (either that or a
bigger chute:-)! We'll get your Level lll for you yet!
Also, remember BUFFROC is in two weeks. Why don't you see if you can come up
for a while? It's been too long since we did the Days Inn thing!
Finally.......I just realized that I never answered on the Doug Nash 4+ 3
letter (shame on me)! I'll get an answer back to you in a few. If you can make
it up, we'll swap some more stories face to face. Remember.......I WILL use
West Systems, I WILL use West Systems..........:-).
Great to hear from you and thanks for the offer! I'm sure we could find LOTS of
places to slot the MDRA guys. Good help is hard to find (or is it hard help is
good to find.......I'll have to ask the wife:-). Seriously though, we'd love to
have you guys run one or two, half day shifts. It'll sure take some of the load
of us! Guys from METRA, NAPAS and Mich. have already offered to do the same. If
we can keep this up, we'll have a lot of "Pros" helping to run the range:-)!
As to the "slave labor" thing...... THANKYOU!!!!!!!! One of the hardest parts
of the launch will be the setup and teardown. Help is ALWAYS in short supply
when these things need to be done.We will DEFINATELY appreciate your help in
this! There will probably be a few impromtdo "partys" during these time
periods.......just to show our appreciation:-).
As soon as we have dates and motels, we'll let everyone know. We should at
least have dates in a few weeks. Again.....thanks for the offer and we'll be in
We missed seeing you guys, too. We'll definately have to make up for it next
year:-)! Those projects sound great, too. Bring em all along! And thanks for
the offer of help. We'll take all we can get! You'll hear more as we know
more..... so we'll be in touch. Take care and talk to you soon.
Geeeeezzzzz John........If you're going to resurrect that thing, I may have to
paint the "WARLLOYD" and see if can lay my hands on a M2400! What's
next.....Ray Halm's "Aries"? Or maybe even Andy Schector's "Grimm Reaper"?
Heaven forbid!!!!!! Maybe his "YOBATF"! And Marks talking about the "FTBOD".
See what you've started:-)?
