    On Oct 31 we took a massive lightning strike at work where my brand new servers got damaged and fried, phone system fried, modems dead, signage dead, switches damaged, etc, and also was auction week last at school. On top of that my consultant I flew in developed a problem and I had to take him to the hospital last Tuesday which resulted on him being out of the count and had surgery last Thursday. Thankfully his son was able to come in and take care of his medical needs so I could get back to work. Bottom line is I been unusually over busy for this time of the year. I will attempt to get a list of people who signed up so far up as soon as possible. Working on getting more donations for the Papa Elf special so if you want to contribute let me know. So far there will be one big prize like I always do and another vendor has donated a couple discount codes. I have to admit, I really like this vendors products. So this year there will be a few names drawn :).

    Finally, due to recent facebook postings from Aerotech, I want to add their new Mega Initiator to my wish list :). Thank you all for your participation :)

    I believe we're all understanding, and can accept an "orthodox" Christmas (pushing it back 2-3 weeks)

    Do what you need to.. take the time you need..

    I still plan to keep this event on schedule :). The consultant's surgery went well although it will take 6-12 months for him to get back to normal. He is planning to come in today but mostly to go over paper work. Most of the repairs are done.

    Finally got my email in. Been trying to get a list together and decide whether or not I was gonna be able to participate this year. I have had to drop out at the last minute before, maybe not this year. Prices all over the board.
    My wish list:

    Kits: I love short, fat, draggy rockets. Would be great not to have to fool with spirals and wood grain but I can handle it.

    Madcow 4" Squat, 1.6” fiberglass mini Cowabunga, 1.6” fiberglass mini Squat
    Binder Design 4" Jackhammer
    LOC 4" Micro Magg (38mm), 4" T LOC 4 (38mm), 5.5" IROC
    Wildman 4" or 5” Gizmo, 4” Dink, Drago (any size!), Shape shifter sport
    MAC MPR38, 3: Scorpion, 4" 3FNC
    PML Bumble Bee, Mystic, MR-1, Tethys
    Mach1 Warhead 3”

    Got a 3” or 4" short fat rocket design in Open Rocket you would like to share? Let PML, MAC, Wildman, Mach1, LOC, or Binder kit it up. I'll take it!
    A 4” Cowabunga or Micro Magg clone made from Quantum Tube or MAC canvas, or fiberglass, would be SWEET! 54mmt even better!

    Hardware:
    CTI Pro24 1 (or 2) grain motor (2 of em even better)
    CIT Pro54 1 grain case
    Loki 54/1200
    Loki 38/480
    AT 54/1706 case
    AT 29/40-120
    Got a 98mm 1grain motor that can fly Aerotech? Can you make one? Doesn't have to be certified, just safe. I'll take it!! Snap ring is fine.

    Motors:
    Loki H144
    Loki H160
    Loki G80
    AT H128W
    AT H165R
    AT 24/40 D9W

    3Ft Rocketman chute
    36" Flat sheet parachute or 42" X-type, neon green or neon green/black, but not real picky. Have yet to try Rocketman’s Hexagonal chutes
    First Fire Mini
    First Fire Micro
    Performance Hobbies 5" fiberglass nose cone 3:1 or 4:1 Ogive
    Missileworks Tracker
    Missilworks screw switches

    I'm in. There are some pretty ambitious items on wishlists considering the typical $20-30 range. But you never know what you might receive.

    A tinge of doubt has come across my mind:

    Tomorrow is the last day to sign up. It's also a Friday, and most Black-Friday sales will start tomorrow. And, i believe I've used my work -e-mail address to communicate, so I may not get my recipient until Monday morning..

    Was there an exact cut-off time? Any chance we can get our recipients by 4:00PM EST?
