    Last pic in this set . . . 1975 BCMRA ( Sec #217 ) Ft. Lauderdale, FL . . . That's me, just to the right of the FSI F100 - powered HJ exhaust plume. Bob Koenn ( rocket in hand ) in front of the van, next to me. Jim Tucci to his left.

    Ah, the bad old days when Bruce Lee was in charge of publications.

    Same year I went to NARAM-17 in Florida. And met the fire ants. I'd swear I've seen that photo before, a long time ago (section newsletter maybe?). Rocketeers were so young then...

    BCMRA's ( Broward County Model Rocket Association - Sec #217 ) launch system was used for NARAM-17 in the "Fire Ant Swamp" . . . LOL !

    Remember the hotel, the Solage International Inn ?

    Yes, this is where you saw the photo . . . PDF's below !

    You mean Bruce Kelly. Lee was treasurer for years.

    Dang!! Thank you for that correction. Absolute apologies to Bruce Lee for that mistake.

    Bad idea to even bring it up. Sorry all.

    I wonder if Mark Bundick thought he would be Nar president when that picture was taken

    I have a whole roll of B/W photos from NARAM-17 that need scanning. Includes D13 cato's and Jim Hartmann's Pan Am Space Clipper on its way to impact with the power line.

    If an RSO was festooned with a hard hat I would have a hard time taking them seriously.

    Surely they were made for laughs. Right?

    Working on it, scans of one roll done but Nikon ViewNX and XnConvert and Goog Photos are not playing well together. When I get everything straightened out I'll post a link to the Photos album. Here's a couple to start - me on the left and my Dad George Cook in the center.

    And here's the genuine D13 cato destroying a nice Saturn V model. I didn't find the Pan Am Space Clipper on this roll of negatives.

    Actually, not . . . Back in the "G. Harry Stine Days", the NAR had a different "feeling" . . . Everyone wanted to look like the guys in the last photo.

    Later, many RSO's glued half-rockets sticking out of them to look like they had impaled the RSO . . . LOL !

    I had a binder. Lost it.

    I remember when Bruce Kelly was prez and Bruce Lee was treasurer. I also remember registering the domain names for both nar.org and tripoli.org back in the day. I was the original "Technical Contact" for both.
