Although I will not be going, my trailer will attending in my place. Please stop by and say hello (yes, to my trailer). The trailer is not going to launch anything but it will be carrying quite a few rockets.

Can we autograph it and write graffiti on it?
Has your MachBuster flown yet? No, my payload section hasn't yet either. But I do have a rocket to put it in now....

No, you certainly may not. Trailers have rights too, you know. ;-)
Sad to say the Machbuster is not going to fly, as it was acquired for my collection.
Put that bay in something and let me know how it works out for you.

I'll be there, with the Lusty Cornmaiden and Stumpy (a 52 foot tall rocket). Might take something smaller, but haven't decided yet.

Hmm,, I'm wondring NAR Superoc length limit would be if you extrapolated the rules out to the motor class used.

We are leaving in the morning (7/16) and we will have our display models and will be selling Marc Klinger's Rocket Screen Saver. Look for us on vendor row.
Most of my time will be getting ready for my L3 certification.

On 15 Jul 2003 12:47:57 -0500, kaplow snipped-for-privacy@eisner.encompasserve.org.TRABoD (Bob Kaplow) is alleged to have written:
Hmm.... 52 feet is 1600 cm, so it looks like they built it twice as tall as it needed to be.
In fact, the Aerotech Hybrids (assuming the largest, the 98mm M845HW) only total 6500 * 3 = 19500 N-s, which is about 90% of the way to the top of the "N" range. Thus, they are almost exactly twice as tall as they need to be for maximum points.
I wonder if it'll fold in half?
Is it staged or clustered? With a 6" tube, a 3-way cluster would have to either use motors around 2.5" diameter, or have the motor mounts stick out beyond the sides of the tube.

Well, since it's LDRS time, someone has to ask the $64K question:
How many issues has Kelly caught up on the HPR commitment? And will the board do anything to rectify the problem, or will they give him yet another "one more chance"?
What will Kelly's excuse be this time, now that TRA has paid off his house, his truck, and his daughters education?

People have received the June issue. I think he's about on target.
What problem are you refering to? I don't like that the physical size is smaller & I didn't like the content of 2 issues but, that's not a crime. I've encouraged the board to disolve the TRA/HPR relationship & let HPR stand on it's own but, I doubt that it will happen.
Excuse for what? Can anyone prove that TRA paid for his house, truck & daughter's education?

Not enough to count.
No.
Of course.
AND let him "keep the change" on insurance premium monies.
A Bruce Kelly excuse FAQ would reveal his excuses to be narrow in scope but varied in which outside force to blame at the time.
AND exceptionally long winded.
He could certainly use a vacation. How about a round the world cruise paid for in full with all expenses from the "insurance premium fund? Lord knows it is not being used for anything else but a slush fund.

Allegedly yes but only in a court of law, not on rmr.

So.... you're bringing Smack Down to rmr? ; )
Sounds like a no holds barred grudge match to me. Maybe bring back G.L.O.W. from the mid 80's. You know, Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling?
