You meet the nicest people in model rocketry.

I was surprised with a Christmas gift from a fellow club member who has become a very good buddy. Because of my affinity for staging, he gave me the new release two-stage Sterling Silver, which I'd already had my eye on. Plus packs of booster and sustainer B engines. I was blown away.

Thank you, Dr. Houchin. Can't wait for you to see it fly.

I met Roy in Alamogordo at NSL-2017. A friend and I were sitting in hotel lobby waiting for a group to gather for dinner. Roy was there, and we struck up a conversation. We talked for over an hour, and when the dinner group never really materialized, the three of us dined together. Roy has family in Colorado, and on annual trips here, he and his wife have gotten together with us twice for dinner since getting to know him.

Hard to find a nicer guy, in the hobby, or anywhere.

I feel fortunate!

By the way, nice looking rocket. Iím a big fan of red/white/black color scheme on rockets.
