    Can we make some pre-printed stickers then?

    Sorry, but I am being serious.. my handwriting is a-trocious!!! Like, really bad! (thank you modern texting & computer use for the last, oh, 30 years!! )

    and 2) I plan to fill out a lot of these cards!

    In some areas, i.e., name, where your from, rocket name, etc. Keep the font size to 12 points. That's legible for most everyone, but still small enough that you can work your way around the card. I've seen this done at some of our other launches and it didn't seem to be an issue. Some places like motor, est. altitude, and other numerical descriptions there really isn't room. Keep your electronics configuration on a separate sticker.

    Cool, thanks!!

    Yeah, just the repetitive stuff would go on a sticker, Name, NAR#, cert level, home town, etc..

    (I remember coming back for a vacation with about 20 rolls of film. I went to Costco to get them developed. I asked if I can just fill out one form / packet, and then just staple another 19 to it. She said 'No'. SO, I went home & made labels with all the pertinent info..)

    Another Announcement. Chris' Rocket Supply Announces the LOC Caliber Challenge.

    This special is for NSL only. Special includes The Caliber ISP kit($87.95 retail), the Loc 3″ EBAY upgrade($29.35 retail), and the Aerotech I65W DMS motor($89.99 retail) with 9 seconds of White Lightning power!!! We will fly these either Saturday or Sunday at NSL, TBD on Saturday at the launch. The contest will be closest to 4800Ft, and there will be prizes for the winner. These prizes are still TBD based on number of entries. This special is 40% off retail for the entire package, a $208 retail value for $125!!!

    The kit will be shipped upon ordering, and the motor will be delivered at NSL

    Rules:

    User must supply the altimeter to record altitude.
    Flyer must bring built to Chris’ Rocket Supplies before heading to pad to launch, and must return to Chris’ Rocket Supplies immediately upon recovery. The altimeter must still be beeping for credit to be awarded.
    Once the launch day is determined, there will be a couple hour window that launches must occur during. This will be announced at the launch once we work it out with the launch organizer.
    Flight must have successful recovery, with no damage to count. Cert style rules will apply.
    This is the most important rule: Have fun!!!
    One of the ISP PERFORMANCE SERIES of kits, which feature factory pre-slotted airframe and through-the-wall fin construction and high power motor capabilities, the CALIBER ISP is a light weight, high power performer. The 54mm motor mount is great for Level 1 motors. An Aerotech J-90 motor puts this kit out of sight – try one out if your field can handle it. It is a very cool flight! (and sometimes a long walk) This kit flies great on a variety of G , H and I motors using the optional MMA-3 (for 29mm motors) or MMA-4 (for 38mm motors) motor mount adapter. Parachute Recovery.

    All LOC/PRECISION “PK-XX” kits include heavy duty airframe and motor mount tubes, high-grade precision-cut plywood fins, centering rings, rip-stop nylon parachute or streamer, nylon shock cord with loops sewn in and mount, launch lug, polypropylene nose cones and instructions.

    No. Rail buttons aren't that expensive and you can buy them on the field. Just build your rocket without them of you don't have them handy. Someone will have an extra pair. A couple 1/8" holes in your airframe and you're good to go. 5 minutes, tops. Bip! Bam! Boom!

    Per the host club request, this is now for highest altitude. No modifications are allowed...ie no tailcones and no changes to length.

    Since this is a competition, I'm not going to give specifics. Just suffice it to say, mine, which is built but not painted, should come in well under five pounds with motor. The airframe and fins are not altered per the rules. It sims to over 6,000'.

    Time for the trash talk to begin. This is a good competition. Same rocket. Same motor. Who can fly it the highest?

    As many of you already know Vern and Gleda Estes will be our special guests for NSL 2018.

    Vern just reached out to me with a special request. "I was thinking how nice it would be if someone built a Super Big Bertha and everyone there signed it for us to take back to Colorado (or ship back). We would proudly display it in our personal museum."

    I don't think I need to point out that his personal museum will eventually wind up alongside G. Harry Stine's, so that donated upscaled BB will be on display for future generations to enjoy.

    BTW banquet tickets are selling very fast. We are already at 2/3 capacity of the hall, so if you are thinking of possibly attending, but aren't quite sure yet, I would advise you to not wait much longer!

    I really would hate to have anyone attending miss out on Vern and Gleda's special 60th year presentation they have planned for the banquet.

    I look forward to seeing many of you at NSL next month!
