# Micro-max at Wal-mart?

### Help Support The Rocketry Forum:

##### Catching up and tripping all over myself.
I've seen some Micro-max engines at Wal-mart, but I've never seen the Micro-max rocket kits.

Did they stop carrying them or is it just the stores I've been to don't stock them?

You seem to have an 'inside' contact to know about the 10/50 MMX package-
Can you give an update on when this might show up in the store?
(Just my luck, they will probably arrive while I am out of town on vacation.)

The only reason I know is that I was at the RCX show in Anaheim CA https://www.rcx.com/ and Bill Stine was there.

I was one of about a dozen SCRA (NAR 430) volunteers who helped staff the free Model Rocket Make-It & Take-It booth. Many shows have such give-aways and they are sponsored by a Model Rocket vendor - in this case Quest. The vendor gets lots of first hand publicity and also gets to hang some banners around the show (and there are frequent PA announcements). Bill had a small display set up in one corner of the very large building area and he conducted a few sales meetings with buyers for local chains. We did not participate in those meetings, but he did show us the box for the SVSS and described the contents, price and availability. Look for it arriving sometime in mid June was what we heard. It is on the computers at Hobby People (local chain), just not in stock when I called last week. You might also e-mail eHobbies to ask when they expect theirs.

As I said on the Yahoogroup:
Hobby people says they are Quest product number 5618 and Hobby People
number 818603. Retail \$39.95 (I expect HP to discount that).

Folks across the USA should ask your local stores if they have
ordered them. If not, you should explain to them why they should.
