> 1. Real Name and City/State.
My real name is William Douglas Sams, but if anybody calls me William, I'll kill 'em My parents called me Doug since the git-go, and that's how it's always been.

> 2. Local flying club.
I'm currently the NAR Section Advisor for the Dallas Area Rocket Society, www.dars.org

> 3. Year started flying.
1st time was either 69 or 70 - not sure which. But my first flight was on a Thanksgiving day. It was frickin' cold out in central Kentucky that day, and we couldn't make the 6V Electro-Launch light those blue-coated Astron ignitors for anything. My cousin finally got us into the air when he spotted the free sample of nichrome wire shipped with my starter set.

> 4. What you hope to gain from this experiment.
A pat on the back and the opportunity to buy some really neat stuff.

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

Doug

No club, just me, my three 10 year olds, and anyone else that wants to tag along.

Started in 1974 (or there about)

I gain a little knowledge or get an idea quite often while reading the forums. I believe the SVDT will be a great creative resource for all of us.

As a team I hope we can help Semroc to provide the HOBBY (not the average Walmart impulse toy buyer) with quality innovative products MADE IN THE US of A.

Primary interest: sport rocket design and building.

Engines (port burners!) and helping to gather information for OOP rockets so we can have more clones of the old classics released.

Warren Oates was just coming into his own with that film, then had a heart attack and died. And that's a fact, Jack.

Billy Doug, on the other hand, is apparently fine, since I called him that yesterday and I'm still walking today.

I would have, but I saw that I'd already been aced out. I got a late start tonight. My daughter was a finalist in the geography bee at school. She came in third in a weak field. I could answer all but two questions, so they can't have been that tough, even for middle school.

Sorry so late guys and Thanks for inviting me. The first thursdays of the months are Carpenter's Union meeting and I get quite swamped being the Recording Secretary. I couldn't get my dog to eat the meeting minutes so I had to attend .

James Pierson in Belfair, Western Washington State

2. Local flying club.
None, Front Yard Free-For-All Test Flights.

3. Year started flying.
1998 at age 31. I had never hear anything about the Sport of Model Rocketry until a neighbor flew some Estes Mighty Max kits. Soon therafter, on my 31st birthday my wife gave me the Estes Goliath and Spitfire Starter Set and I ain't been the same since.

4. What you hope to gain from this experiment.
More knowledge about all aspects of Rocketry in gereral. Satisfaction in using any talents I may have to advance and possibly influence the future of Model Rocketry.


5. What you want the team to accomplish.
Bring creative designs back to the hobby. Actively promote the sport with todays youth by
developing creative, fun, and low cost kits. Develope at Instruction Sheet database to draw from to speed up the kitting process. Also possibly develope an organized prototype testing procedures checklist.


6. Your primary interest area (engines, rocket design, support, building, etc.)
Rocket Design from the first prototype to an actual kit development and arrival on store shelves.
