    No, sounds like the web site needs updating. That was last year's shirt. They don't even have a design for this year's shirt yet.

    I can say with reasonable assurance that OneBadHawk and Performance Hobbies will be there, since they come to our regular launches. We almost always see Wildman, but no word yet.

    Sorry, but no smiley, no body language. Thought you might be poking fun, but figured I'd better answer just in case.

    CSRocketry: Ordered yesterday, was shipped today. :)

    Absolutely! There will be TAPs, a TRA prefect, and plenty of NAR L3 fliers who can sign off for you. Also, you should be able to buy motors on site and save HAZMAT.

    Do yourself a huge favor, though! Contact the board ahead of time and make sure they have copies of the exam and paperwork on hand. They almost always do, but you don't want this to be the one time they don't.

    I am sure hoping to make it. I am just stuck with the problem of convincing my wife that nothing could be better than celebrating her 40th birthday on a farm in the middle of nowhere in Maryland.

    Sadly I will have to miss this Red Glare. Going to be in Michigan for a robotics competition for school. Will be my first missed Red Glare, oh well.

    Update:
    Kenny Allen called and says he has my reloads and will stop by to drop them off on his way up to NOVAAR the first weekend in March, so I should have my motor orders from Performance Hobbies and CSRocketry in time for Red Gare. I plan to fly my Cowabunga Mammoth on an AT M1850 White Lightning. And probably also my Formula 150 on an AT L1365 Metalstorm.

    And then there's the Square Rocket drag race between me and Tom Cohen.

    Still waiting for my reload order, I may be at Red Glare maybe not? Hoping to do a preorder from an attending vendor, we'll see.

    I did use the contact form to get in touch with the board. Got my membership paid and Saturday flight fee. I've even got my wife on board for a road trip. :D

    Let's just say that a REALLY BIG rocket that flew on an O motor a few months ago is being made even BIGGER and will fly on a P. Also being modified is the ejection system. It will now use side-canons and come down on three chutes.

    I’ll be taking off Friday to try make all theee days!

    I just placed an order for a K456DM to go into a Wildman Lance Beta I’m about ready to prime. It’s crunch time to finish these things up!
