I plan on going down to Pueblo this weekend to get my Level 1 Cert using my scratch built rocket. But I am afrd -- very, very afrd!

I wish you luck on your cert attempt. Just be aware that if ANY part of the rocket comes off in flight or upon landing its a failure. IMHO it's better to use a rocket that is as basic as possible for your cert flights, but I really do hope you are successful on your first attempt because it is a very cool looking rocket.
Also, check with the folks that will certify your attempt if they want to see you assemble the motor or not (unless you are using a single use motor). I almost failed my level 1 before even trying because I had put the motor together and the person certifying the flight wanted to watch to verify that it was put together correctly.
