I will spare you my singing a song. But TRF is pleased to announce its 1000th member - csBAR. Welcome and well met sir.

Let us shower you with gifts...

From the TRF Moderators you will be receiving an official TRF tshirt. (PM me your size please) This tshirt is suitable for wearing to all occasions: weddings, funerals, soccer games, and of course rocketry events.

From JFlis of Flis Kits Rocketry you will be receiving the famous Deuce's Wild rocket kit. This is a kit of the famous rocket that is taking the rocketry community by storm. Two canted motors, what more can a man ask for?

From Sandman you will be receiving one of his own Astron Sprint mini kits. A fine kit made by a very fine individual. May it fly high and true.

So, we rejoice you being part of the Web's Premier Rocketry Forum! Welcome!

Now a note from the Admins,
It seems like just yesterday when Milo and I were sitting down wondering why there was no decent rocketry forum. In reality it was over 2 years ago when The Rocketry Forum was formed to fill that void. 2 years and 1000 members later I believe we have reached our goal. TRF has become a haven for new and old rocketeers alike. A place where vendors can come and feel welcome. A place where newbies can "sit a spell" and not be criticized or flamed. And it is all because of the wonderful members here who have mutual respect for the hobby and for each other. You have all made this the Web's Premier Rocketry Forum! So, from the bottom of Milo's and my heart, thank you all!

<He raises his glass for a toast.> Here is to many, many more successful years!

Congrats, csBAR!

This is the first forum I've helped moderate (and there have been a few) where it's been a real pleasure, and, if I'm gone for the weekend, I don't have to worry about whether the place has gone to the dogs by the time I get back.

Here's to a great bunch of guys (and the occasional gal) who make what could be a lot of hard work very little easy work.

Since I'm getting all mushy and stuff, I wanna thank the other mods (Ken, Carl, Jase, and, lastly Mark [for all the nasty stainless steel comments] :D) for welcoming me with open arms and a multitude of elbows to the ribs in good fun when they let me join the ranks of moderators.

But the biggest thanks go to Phil for doing a lot of the nitty-gritty work on making the forum look slick and to Milo for putting up and hosting the server along with doing all that nasty stuff that makes it run smooth and keeping the pr0n bots out.

Thanks, bsexton

It was a big surprise to get that prize.

The moderators, jflis and sandman were very
generous by giving me such valuable gifts, mainly
because we don't have here the opportunity to
take and taste the rocket kits before buying them
and they arrive overpriced because of the income
taxes.

I'm anxious to receive them and start mounting my
first rocket kits.
Then, I plan to post this process and ask you help
to complete them.

You are from Brazil? I have a couple pen-pals from that area... How hard is it to get model rocket stuff down there... do you have to order it from the states, or are there stores there that sell them? It was a shame when your countries space shot did not work... I think they will try again, and I hope it works out for them on their second shot.

Hi n3tjm

Yes, I'm from Brazil, Rio de Janeiro.
It's almost impossible to get model rocket stuff here. We indeed have to order from states, but I've never tried that.
One of the problems is that this practice is not regulated by laws. I really don't know if we may buy motors, even the low-power ones.

After 25 years without playing with and thinking about rockets, I restarted to think about them by reading Richard Nakka's web site five years ago, and to paly with them 2 years ago.
Nevertheless, only 6 months ago I found another Brazilian here selling, throhgh the internet, an Estes Blast-off Flight-Pak of motors, that I bought and realized the power, simplicity, security and reliability of these small and light motors.
From then on, I scratch built 10 simple rockets with 20, 28 and 35mm diameters and up to 24" in length, and I've already launched 7 of them in about 15 launches.
All flew well stabilized, despite the sometimes strong wind, and
opened their chutes nicely. Unfortunately, I lost 3 of them, with C6 motors, in high trees.

In fact it was a shame for our space program, mainly because so
many people died, and I wish our government and specialists take
that as a hard lesson to enhance the security and reliability of
the program and the next vehicles to come.

Below there is a drawing of one of my 35mm/24" rockets
(I don't have a digital camera yet)

Good wishes to you and to my fellow citizens,

Cesar

Wow. That artwork looks really good. Great motor detail too... looks like a MRC/Quest motor...

Thank you,
Everything in the rockets was homemade and the drawings were done using the free program PovRay, initially to help choosing the colors to paint them.

Thank you, Max_Power004!!!

I received the TRF's gifts today!!!

The tshirt is very beautiful and I'm going
to use it in special occasions.
Thank you, Phil.

The Astron Sprint is even smaller than
what I thouth, but realy nice and well
finished.
When I started creating and building my
rockets I thouth I would always work with
little ones, but since I started losing
them, I was forced to build them bigger.
Thank you and congratulations, Sandman.

(Unfortunately, I don't have any 13mm
engine, but I'm going to try to get some,
cause I think I'll loose her with an A8-3.)

Although I've already read a lot about the
famous Deuce's Wild!, it impressed me too
much when I caught it with my hands and
saw it in close.
Thank you very much, Jim.

Now I will start to look for time and a
camera to build, decorate and launch them,
registering everything I can.
I'm very excited with it!!!

Yep, you'll like the Deuce's Wild! I guarantee it! Heck, two of them are travelling the US because it *is* that cool!
