    great list - thanks, after 10 years i've just found a rocket site in the UK that i did not know about. I'm saddened that there is not a single manufacturer based in the UK - i never thought about it before, we did use to have orbital engineering that did the fantastic VMX rocket gliders, but they've seemed to dissappear now:(

    Any mods have a thumbtack, pushpin, or piece of duct tape to make this sticky?

    The OurPlanet link that's there is the generic site link. The one I provided above is my personal page. Please add my OurPlanet page directly below my blog (RStaff3's http://rocketdungeon.blogspot.com/), if that's OK. The generic OurPlanet page probably belongs elsewhere, but I'm not sure where. The PlanetSpace entry that's there belongs under non-rocketry items if it belongs at all.

    Back from dinner. One last round before doing some more work.

    As for clubs, I am tempted to delete the whole list and joint have links to National organizations as it is getting a little too long. ( will pm akpilot also)

    Some changes and corrections:
    changed title to major events and deleted olders ones, ninfinger changed to one listing, Gates is now on another site, cleaned up EMRR, corrected search engine, MC2 is a commercial site, palm os site dead, wrasp32 dead, jerru osulivan dead, Mark Fisher dead link (same as wrasp32), ninfinger already listed, hobby rocket search engine already listed, removed ramsay electronics and McMaster carr as too general, remove planet space.

    Under blogs, I am tempted to remove Maelstrom's. Same for wik's.

    I didn't go through the list of clubs.

    I believe Big Head Pete is still open. I can't really confirm that though, I've never purchased from him.

    I didn't see all the things I mentioned that were already on the list. I guess I missed them.

    couple minor corrections/ additions.
    remove scalerockets as discount rocketry
    removed rocketshoppe from shops as listed elsewhere and didn't sell anything
    removed justrockets.com
    removed modelrockets.uk as deepsky
    removed mr. fiberglass due to incident. A shame.
    removed duplicate quest entry (left as manufacturer only)

    no feedback on the listing of clubs yet.
