Default Sprite online

We have just put the Sprite online. We are offering it as a free kit with all retail orders over $40 at least through the Memorial Day weekend.

The Sprite was always one of my favorites.
Back in the early 70's, we would launch one first to guage the wind conditions. It was always a good 'warm-up' to the day's other launches. It should be a mainstay of any serious rocket fleet!
Thanks, as always, Carl and the gang at Semroc!

This is one that I consider a classic. I'm pleased and surprised. Order coming up.

I discovered the other day that I was out of Kevlar cord for shock-cord anchors.

Clearly, I need to order some more. If I end up getting $38 worth of other stuff, well, I'm MOSTLY sticking to my pledge to cut down a bit, right?

Mmmmm, free Sprite!

Default On the way!

Went to place an order this morning and was happy to see the Sprite there!

Started adding items to the cart and noticed I could get a free Sprite!

What a deal! Free Sprite. Obey your thirst, order Semroc! Now I'm thirsty.

Hmmm. I think I'm going to order $40 - (cost of kevlar anchor cord) worth of Semroc beginner kits, to give out at Oroc club launches.

You know, for the kids.

The free Sprite, I'll keep for myself.

Will the Omega be ready before the Memorial Day weekend?

Thanks for the order!

The rocket building contest is simply fascinating to watch. I need to do a write-up of our experiences.

We have been looking forward to NARAM since the last one ended.

I don't think so!

We are trying to get the next group out in time for NARAM.
