The radon gas from my basement is starting to slowley soften my imagination so I need your help. I need a name for a new kit that's coming up and whoever comes up with the best name, will get a Thrustline Fun Pack (See Below).

Okay folks here are the rules.
-Only 1 submission per person.
-Submission may include up to 5 names
-You must email your submission by midnight (EST) Novemeber 9th, 2004 to:
[email protected]
-Please remember, this is a family oriented company:D
-Winner will be announced by Novemeber 15th
-Thrustline will have exclusive rights to said names at the end of contest.

Okay, here's what the winner gets.

Mars Probe kit
12" Rip Stop Nylon Para chute
4-pack of Nomex heat shields
2-1 oz. glue bottles
3-pack of 12" mylar chutes

Now...here's a little about the rocket and what it looks like!

Length- 31"
Diameter- 1.6"
Motors- D's, E's
Recovery- 18" Chute

This will be the first of the new Thrustline Lazer Series!!
You guessed it, my first kit with laser cut fins...and bassowood to boot!

If we win, and already have a mars probe kit, could we substitute?

IF you already have a Mars Probe kit, a kit of equal value and excitement will be awarded!:D
 
Sent mine in. How 'bout the winner getting one of the new kits?

Because we have already started the contest I'm a little reluctant to chage the rules. However, when it's over, you never know what could happen;)

Any idea on the sale price?

As far as price, that will depend on final material cost. Still working on it.

Thanks for the entries guys
 
Okay folks, the contest has closed and the results are in. There were 28 entries with about 90 some odd names submitted. On the 16th (NOV2004) I'll reveal the winner!

Keep those fingers crossed....and no peeking.

No....that's duck and cover....


Okay I'm done.:D :kill:

I meant did you put it in the mail, but I guess you did.

But I'm afraid I haven't received anything. When do you think it should have arrived?
 
2 questions:

1) When will the Astral Lance be available, I really like that design

2) Where you going to post all "name" entries(sp?) that came in?

WOW!! Those are some pretty cool names. Here's an idea for a new contest:
Pick one of those names and build a rocket around it.
 
Yay! The Mars Probe kit and all the extra bits arrived in the post today!
Only had a very brief look this morning when it arrived, but the Mars Probe looks excellent!

Thank you very much, flying_silverad!
