Default Any New News?

It's been a LONG time since anything has been posted here. Just wondering if the Semroc team has any new kits up their sleeves or if there's been any progress with the motor making end of the business?

Both.

We have been busy since NARAM catching up on inventory, trying to release many kits that we have been working on for a while, AND working on the engine machine.

We should be announcing our Christmas sale soon. One new kit slated for early second quarter 2009 has been delayed in committee, but it is finally kitted. It is the most talked about rocket this year. (No, not the Saturn!)

Sheryl has been asking Santa for an engine machine for every birthday, anniversary, Christmas, etc for many years now. Birthday passed again. Anniversary next Monday probably is also going to pass empty handed. Christmas is still possible. We try to reserve each Friday for the engine machine, but bringing money in has priority.

I'll take a guess. The Orion?

Oh, wait. I know, you finally sourced the CPT-10 and are releasing the long-awaited Payloader II!

That's what the money tree out back is for. Don't tell me you've been taking and burning those "leaves" all these years, have you.

That would be my guess as well, Scott. Looking forward to that one (and the Saturn, of course!).

Oh goody! I'm newly unemployed, funded by severance, and I've got lots of spare time!

For a few months that is ;-)

I wish! You would think that 1.00" ID would not be that hard to do.

It is really a small money tree. I don't think we are using the correct fertilizer because so far, nothing. Must be the economy or global warming.

Been there, done that. Unemployment was VERY good to my NARAM preparation this year . Thankfully I'm no longer a deadbeat and am just itchin' to start sending Semroc every other paycheck again.
