I don't think married females with children who chase a ball like a bunch of
bumble bees should stop living.
But I don't think governments should be paying private sports organizations
money and giving them property that belongs to the taxpayers.
But, as we all know, you just follow the money trail to learn the truth.
Lake Washington Technical College and King County would take over ownership
of most of the farm, with the college paying $500,000 to the soccer group.
(government paying money to the private sports org)
King County would give ownership of Sixty Acres South to the soccer group,
and extend the group's lease of Sixty Acres North, also county-owned, to at
least 50 years.
(government giving taxpayer land to a private sports org)
This *was* our local flying field. The soccer group already had
exclusive use of the north portion of the park (basically, you would be
marked for death if you trof upon their fields while they were closed
for the grass to recover). We shared the south portion and airspace
with the glider guiders, and a dog group used it some days. Decent
rocket field - maybe good for a "D" in a heavy bird, but great for
I don't see how they are calling this a "swap", if the college is paying
$500,000 for the farmland and the county is giving the group the park,
while the glider, rocket, and dog groups lose the only place we have in
Believe it or not, the county executive that was mantioned, Ron Sims, is
running for re-election.
What would be ideal is if there was a way to coordinate shared used.
Soccer fields make for an excellent place to fly low-power from. We
used to use the soccer complex of a local small community; now it's
tough to find a time when there isn't a game going on.
Joking or not, your subject is wholly and completely inappropriate.
As a parent of kids who play soccer and who also launch rockets, I'm a
bit disgusted by it, even in jest.
get a sense of humour kevin... if this disgusts you you are pretty easy to
disgust.. heres some more disgusting comments ffrom me to for you:
soccer moms must die because they ride around all day as taxi drivers for
their pampered kiddiez wasting precious fuel in gas guzzling urban assault
vehciles talking on theie cells phones continously and causing car accidents
where they kill less fortunate people... is that disgusting enough for ya?
it is for me...
whats disgusting is your 25 yr history of theft, lies,etc...... only in
america, would somebody with your history not be in prison...
head over to Ye Old Rocket Shoppe where they just published SNOAR
newsletters from 84-91.... JI has been lying and stealing from people for 25
years.... and getting away with it most of the time.....now thats
So, you won't be upset when those same "soccer moms" who "must die"
start claiming that rocketry folks must die and are a threat because
they pollute the environment with their rocket exhaust and create a fire
I must admit, I'm not at all surprised by your juvenile pedantic response.
I also realize I shouldn't at all be surprised that you made the comment
in the first place, as you've shown a consistent lack of tolerance for
any opinion that disagrees with your own along with an incredible lack
of self control.
For someone who seems to want to portray himself as some sort of hero
for the cause, I hope you enjoy contemplating the damage that your one
single, stupid, misguided comment can do.
How do you think the King County rocketry folks will be portrayed if, in
an attempt to make sure there is public land available for their use,
one of these soccer moms that you portray as being so evil comes across
your wonderful prose and makes that part of the discussions with the
authorities? It certainly doesn't paint the hobby in a very good light
now, does it?
You will, of course, have some wonderfully eloquent response to claim
that your wholly inappropriate comments are justifiable.
hello? it was a joke said in jest.... sheesh.. the only people you can make
fun of anymore are poor white southern males with no teeth.. hey that sounds
see? I was makingg fun of my self..... its humour you morons! oops that
Politically Incorrect ... I meant mentally challenged, surely don't want to
rile up the mental defectives among us.....Phil?
one more time: the B) is 2 eyeballs with a smile...its a smiley face.....

I'm taking time of from that. Just sit in the corner and dream up
exclusive clubs that only you and a select few of your friends can
You've made an effort to do some positive things lately but you are
still a weenie.
