    Which Junior Program should I join, NAR or TRA?

    Welcome! I started off in the Tripoli Mentoring Program when I was around 15 (when it first was a thing). It allowed me to build a rocket and fly it under the direct supervision of a mentor. Most people are willing to sign off on the flight card if you know what you are doing. As for how big...

    So what other hobbies besides rocketry do folks here do?

    Other than rocketry, I've recently gotten into the hobby of endurance running. Currently training for a triathlon in 2 weeks and a 25K this fall. Assuming those go well I'll be attempting a 50k (about 31 miles) next year.

    Risen From the Dead--A long overdue build

    Drilled the holes to attach the altimeter bay on the sustainer to the upper body tube. Mark the location.... Set on the drill press and use the freshly adjusted laser sights. Double check that I'm perpendicular to the tube. Ahh, the sight of freshly drilled FG. Tapping...

    Ninja Sex Party, yes. Also Starbomb. Regardless, I'm working on drawing up plans for the wiring for the motor retention on the upper stage. I'm also reading through CJ's thread about what he did. Worked on sanding the fins.
