1. Real Name and City/State:

Jay Goemmer, Twin Falls, Idaho


2. Local flying club:

Occasionally fly with Tripoli Idaho (Boise), but mostly solo.


3. Year started flying:

c. 1971 - 1979, on hiatus until I got laid off in 2000, officially became a "BAR" in early November 2001.


4. What you hope to gain from this experiment:

Having an outlet for the fruits of my obsessive-compulsive rocketry "fits," as well as hammering out solutions using group input.


5. What you want the team to accomplish:

(Overly melodramatic "Mad Scientist" voice) "To TAKE OVER THE *WORLD!*" (insert maniacal laughter here)

Seriously, to help develop high-quality products that other rocketeers will enjoy building and using, as well as promoting the "cool" factor that's been missing from many 21st Century rocketry products. Also, "thinking outside the box" to find new solutions to old problems.


6. Your primary interest area (engines, rocket design, support, building, etc.):

Rocket design, engine feedback, moral support, occasional building, and using my Intensively Analytical TV News Brain "for the Benefit of Rocketeers... (melodramatic pause) ...*Around the World.*"

--Oh, and some people say I'm a nice guy, too.


Cheers,

1. Bill Eichelberger, Ft. Thomas, KY
2. Member of QUARK #624 out of Cincinnati, OH
3. Started flying in 1977
4. I just hope to contribute something useful somewhere along the line. Design has never been a strong point of mine, but I'm willing to give it a shot.
5. I'd like to see something different from the group make it to market. (Not just a product for product's sake, but something viable on a commercial scale.)
6. Building and fire extinguishing.

1. John Brohm, and my home is Pittsburgh, PA. Born and raised in Canada, but have been living and working in the USA for about 12 years now. On our way to citizenship later this year, it would seem. A degree in Electrical Engineering, and an executive in a systems controls corporation.

2. Our local club is the Pittsburgh Space Command (NAR Section 473), and our members include Steve Foster & Rod Schafer, Team Champs in 2006. I have the privilege of serving PSC as the club's VP.

3. Started flying somewhere in the late 70's, but this dissipated with college. It got serious again when my son turned about 3 or 4, so I guess I "BAR'ed" around 1988 or 1989 or thereabouts.

4. Satisfaction from participating in and hopefully contributing towards the advancement of the hobby. We are constantly seeing a stream of new kids enter the hobby through our club - the challenge has been getting them to stick. Coming up with new aspects and ideas that keep the hobby exciting, fresh and dynamic will be one way towards this goal, and my hope is that "This Grand Experiment" might find ways to contribute.

5. Well I suppose the group has the potential to be a sort of Skunk Works for the hobby; I'm sure many creative and imaginative ideas will be spawned here, yet only a few might ever make it to market. But it's those few I believe we're looking for!

6. Oh I'm a builder, that's what I enjoy the most. I appreciate craftsmanship and am always looking for new techniques to try.

Honored to be part of the group and to have the chance to interact with you all.

I hope to gain alot of experience with rocket motors. Which souldn't be a problem considering that we will be making them. I want the team to help us design the best engines out there. I believe that this can be done because the ones on here have helped to make us what we are today. This team will ultimately be the future of SEMROC and I look forward to working with all of you to help us with ideas. I am interested in all of it, besides I have to be that's what I do. In all seriousness I enjoy all of it.

Bruce,

I'm glad to finally hear from you on this forum. I was beginning to think you were just a figment of Carl's imagination...

If this was an Aussie forum, we'd ALL be named Bruce.
(Well, according to Monty Python. )

I've met Bruce on several occasions. If he is a figment, Carl has a much better imagination than any of us give him credit for.
