    I have your prize sitting in my office. It was delayed due to no having the right size box to ship it in, and then life took over and it kinda got forgotten about! Thanks for the reminder

    Yep.
    I'm in. I'll work on my list and get it sent in.
    This is always fun.

    List Added: Yeah...there is quite a bit of stuff but also a wide price range.
    Most can be had for around 30 bucks or cheaper.

    Perfectflight MiniTimer or MicroTimer2
    Additive Aerospace 808 #16 camera shroud – 2.6”
    Mobius actioncam kit from LiquidFyre rocketry – 4”
    Rocket Junkie aluminum charge wells, four would be great.

    Loki 38/120 case
    Aerotech 29/120 case
    Aerotech 38/120 case

    Pieces for a scratch build coming up
    Mix and Match so long as they are all from same place
    LOC, Binder or Madcow components
    Length of 3” BT
    Length of 54mm BT (2 if from Madcow)
    3” Nose Cone
    3” coupler
    54mm coupler
    2.63” coupler stiffener

    A 24" piece of tubing from MAC Performance, 3" or 4". Maybe someone has some lying around.

    36” or 40” X type parachute

    I would love LOVE to have a plugged forward closure for 38mm Loki that worked for commercial loads so I wouldn’t have to build the infernal delay. This would likely have to be a custom job so if a machinist gets my name, YAY

    Likewise for the Aerotech 38mm. Doubly so in fact, their delays are even worse to fiddle with. I use electronic ejection anyway.

    Eggtimer Quantum
    Eggtimer WiFi Switch

    I don't really need anymore kits but I would greedily accept a Madcow 2.6” fiberglass Goblin

    All else fails:
    Gift certificate to Chris’ Rocket Supplies, LOC, Madcow, PML, Wildman, Performance Hobbies or Mac Performance - but I really like opening things.

    I wish for:
    Kits, fantasy / sci fi types (skill level 3 or higher)
    Scratch building parts
    Motor hardware
    A paint gun (Detail or touch-up type)

    I also asked for a shirt or two. Cool "nerdy / aerospace" type shirts. How cool would it be to show up at a launch with a General Dynamics or Lockheed Martin polo!

    I doubt he was talking about something else. Just being annoying. Apparently he didn't read the directions.

    I never got in on a Christmas in July!
    And I couldn't get in on the last Christmas with nothing to offer, or any money.
    Some really nice TRF'r just ordered some knifes, so I guess I'll go for it.
    My wish list will be made up sometime soon and sent onto PaPa Elf.
    I trust MaMa elf is treating you well! And vise-versa!
