I would like to start a new post based on a post made by a "Beatle man" who claims this hobby is dead or dieing. While I respect the mans( I assume it to be a male no offense if otherwise) right to his opinion. He also said it was boring and too expensive and chooses another hobby to occupy his time.. That's fine to each his own. I personally do not care if it is dieing other than I enjoy doing it and would like to continue. Regulation is necessary unfortunately and I am all for reasonable controls and regulations. Reasonable is in the eye of the beholder I guess. The Oklahoma bombings were done with fertilizer yet they did not make all fertilizers of thsitype illegal... And outlawing all high power or otherwise rocket motors is just as unreasonable. I think there will be compromise and workable solutions will and have thus far been reached. Kind of brings me to the question that some ask WHY do you do model rocketry... well I enjoy it! That's why... am I trying to win a Nobel prize or make some great scientific discovery... no just having fun, myself and my children.. Maybe it is a dieing hobby but not for me I still pursue it regularly and enjoy it.
