I do have a number of the much cherished Estes B14 motors, both booster and upper stage. I need to contact NAR to get the paperwork to fly them at a club launch this year.

I think all you need to do is notify (in writing, via e-mail should be fine) whoever is in charge of the NAR OOP Motor Testing Program and you should be able to fly those B14's. I did that a few years ago (used some of my Centuri labelled B14's) and they worked fine, had that nice, classic kick off the pad on ignition.
