Thank you, everyone, for making those years so special to us.


NO Thank you and Carl for making that a magical time I will never forget it. Carl got a lot of us started in the reselling business

+1 to what UMRS just said above.
Without Sheryl and Carl re-introducing the SLS Scorpion and Jaguar way back when, I doubt I would have gotten back into rocketry. I was pretty much RC Aircraft only since after finishing HS in 1988. Reintroducing classics for a reasonable price got me back into the hobby.
Their stellar service, quality, and part selection kept me interested.
Top notch company and folks we will never see the likes of again.
While I am glad that Semroc continues to exist, it's not the same.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL

Randy said they had one or two more things to try, and if they didn't work, the site would be gone forever.

However, you can search the wayback machine and get some of the website.

When I learned of Carl's passing, I preserved a good portion of it the best I could at the time, but I didn't get everything and it isn't preserved as a coherent website. HTML isn't always your friend.
I love sanding.

Default The Camelot of Model Rocketry

As I have been clearing out most of my collection of model rocketry items, I have been finding
things that I have not see in years. SO here's mine I found it.
I was SAM #0333 and that turned out to be a very good number, as I got to meet Carl at
NARAM 55 in Aurora Ohio. this 1966 Centuri Catalog was Carl's I won this from his son Bruce on Ebay. Yes, I believe that Carl's SEMROC was the CAMELOT of Model Rocketry.
