Some of us (I'll speak for just myself now) were a little nervous that Lee might not be able to pull himself away from his businesses, because he's a *very* busy guy. But *lots* of us were *very* happy that he and Betty were able to come to NARCON this year. It was a big thrill for us, too!


Cheers,

Gosh, I remember having about 15 or 20 Interceptors... Wow, if I only had them now...

We're going to have a lot of fun with LAUNCH, and it has been really gratifying to spend so much time lately discussing the heyday of model rocketry with Vern and Gleda Estes, for example. Our offices are actually in the Empire State Building here in New York, and it was so cool to do some photography up here with model rocket kits, high above Manhattan. Come see us!

Mark


COOL BEANS!!!!!
I can't wait to see the first issue. Best of luck with the launch of Launch! I look forwards to seeing you at NARAM.

John

Thanks, John. I've got "launch fever" in NYC right now, and can't wait to get to Arizona, even if it's 115 in the shade. Great job with Red River Rocketry. I'm looking forward to seeing you at NARAM.
Thanks again,
Mark

Thanks for the compliment on RRR... I look forwards to meeting you!

Now I have to wait 3 or 4 days for the transaction to clear, but Mark, I'm signing up for a one-year subscription. (Only because I used the rest of the overtime I made working the 4th of July to place a much-needed order to Semroc for my ongoing Tau Zero experiment. )

I guess that means I'm committed to LAUNCH now.


Thanks and cheers,

Ok, I just put in for a years subscription to Germany.

Hope the magazine gets packed well and arrives in one piece.

Jay,
I know how it is to run through those PayPal hoops. But I'm very glad you're signing up for a subscription because the first issue is full of Centuri stuff and it would be a crime if you didn't have a copy. Of course, something tells me that I would have made sure you had one anyway.

As for Tau Zero, it sounds like a good LAUNCH story to me....

Mark

Leo,
Glad LAUNCH will be read in Germany. And let me know if there are any hobby shops nearby that would like to stock the mag in their store. Great rocket collection on your site, and whew, those BMWs are great-looking. Now, that's what I call traveling to the launch site in style!
Mark
