Well we have a harbor freight in Westland. Maybe we should do a club launch out in your neck of the woods this summer?

My recent experience has been that HobLob tends to price their motors at around $8 per Estes 3-pack, so with 40% off coupon they come out about the same price as the local Wmarts.

HobLob (at least, around here) seems to stock a MUCH better assortment of motor sizes, compared to Wmart and many LHS.

I have found that the really good use for 40% coupons is on kits

And once your local store gets up & running, they will likely have a clearance section. There can be some real bargains there too (but discount coupons can not be used to lower those prices further)

Mike, did you notice that they closed the Micheal's over on Ford and Warren?

I'm sure it has something to do with opening the new HL.

Yes my wife used to go there to get stuff for her crafting. They just opened that store not too long ago, right after they closed the sears hardware across the street.

That street corner has gone through an afwul lot of changes the last 5 years.

I stop by Hobby Lobby when I go up to Sandman's.

To be honest, I wouldn't go way out of my way to go there, but occasionally they have something on the clearance aisle for ridiculously little money.

My best buy there was an Atomic City Mercury Capsule which had been returned because it was missing the decals. Price....$6. Why $6 I have no idea. It would have still been a steal for $12. But I didn't argue. :D

I never made the connection before (even when had a nosecone made) but I've been to Port Huron before. Long ago and far away I did my river diving certification in the St. Clair river. Being on the river bottom and hearing one of those big cargo ships go over your head is both way cool and seriously spooky. Maybe someday when my kids are older I might start diving again.


Then again I might just spend the money on rockets...

We used to go to Port Huron for vacations when I was a little kid. We would stay at a Howard Johnson's Motel that had an outdoor pool. For a city kid, that was strenuously cool. And it was in the country, too! :) My sister, older brother and I would have a blast there every year.
