I must be getting old :)

Seriously though - I think this would be a valuable addition. Topics could include

-Personal protective gear: What do you need to wear to work with a particular adhesive/paint/filler/etc. The more I learn about the chemicals I'm working with, the more cautious I am. I think there's a lot of value in that.
-Official regulations, club rules, and informal suggestions to keep launches safe and fun (for example, a club I launched with put a kiddie pool under an HPR pad to mitigate fire risk)
-Polite discussion about current FAA/NFPA regulations around rocketry, how the regulations and laws are being interpreted, and how to make sure you're in compliance.

I think - particularly in the realm of "wear the right gear" - that this is something that needs more exposure.
