Thanks for helping make this BAR's dreams come true. Because of Semroc I was able to build many kits that were way before my time in rocketry, but 100 times more interesting than most offerings today. I am truly grateful to you and your family.

When I want to clone an old kit in the future it's gonna be a hard habit to break to not type Semroc into the Google Search engine.

I wish things didn't go this way for you, but like all others in this community, I certainly understand.

Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.

Maybe Semroc will rise again someday to bless future BAR's returning to the hobby.

You will be missed, is an understatement. Take care,

I used to have super powers, but then one day, my Therapist took them away from me.

Sorry to hear this, but I can't say it's unexpected. You can't imagine how you'll be missed.

I hope there is time and energy to do a proper job of archiving everything related to Semroc.

Plans, files, procedures, specifications for and contact lists of suppliers, and so on.

This will make it easier to bring back kits and such in the future, should someone want to take on the legacy.

I am sure there would be plenty of volunteers to help do this right.

Very sad news indeed but completely understandable. That is series of blows that any company would have a difficult time dealing with. You have been a tremendous friend to the hobby and to me personally. I will always treasure my SAM number. Best wishes to you all.

Sheryl and Bruce,

Thank you for sharing Carl with us and helping make his dream of re-starting Semroc come true.

Thank you for creating a company with a product listing unrivaled by any other and customer service second-to-none.

Thank you for REALLY getting me back into the hobby.

I wish you the best for the future.
