I'm a born-again rocketer, lapsed....
Flew small scale Estes as a kid; a friend and I got into high-power
after seeing the rocket episode of "Junkyard Wars" a handful of years ago.
Sort of fell out of the hobby after 9-11. My friend fell on bad times
financially, and I moved out-of-state. Didn't seem as fun without him.
Anyway, this morning's, well yesterday morning's (now), launch of
Discovery got me to thinking about rocketry again, and I re-subscribed
to this newsgroup. Haven't had a chance to read through all the threads
yet, but it seems many of the same people are still here. I see Jerry is
still posting, as is Bob Kaplow, and Anthony Casaroni, and tai fu, and
LOC precision is still in business, and, ah, my memory's not that good
So... what's the current state of the hobby? If I wanted to get back in,
is it still as much fun? What are the current regulations? What has
changed in the last five years?
Anyone have any info on the Phoenix AZ area?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
