Last year marked my return to active rocketry after caring for my ailing Mother. Now my great nephew wants to build and fly rockets with me :flyingpig:. I really am looking forward to this as he will be my retrieval team :lol: since I walk with a cane these days. I was at NARAM 59 and found out quick that a retrieval team is in my best interest.

Welcome back to the party FSR. I too have an appreciation for an active retrieval team. But as I'm sure you've discovered there is nothing like a whiff of burnt black powder to put a spring in your step ! :) Best fountain of youth concoction I can think of.

Ah, you'll probably find out that you are one of the younger members of this forum. :wink:

Nah. Getting "officially" old is when you start ordering supper from the senior menu at Denny's at 4:30 in the afternoon.

My friend Braz said the best way to get rockets retrieved is to take along a roll or two of dollar coins as finder's fees (assuming there are a bunch of kids at the launch).
