Default Semroc Erockets release date help

I would like to document erockets Semroc releases. Erockets posted an anouncement on Facebook for each kit when the re-released many of Semroc's kits. Erockets also indicated that 121 kits were finally released in what must have been a heruclean effort from April of 2015 throgh the Saturn 1B release in July 2016, (although there were a few more kits than 121 released in NC). From that I have dates for many of the re-releases, but nothing for the ones below. If you know you have a date for the re-release of the some of the ones below, that would be a big help, if the instructions have a Dayton address, and are dated after April 2015, please post the instruction date. If you bought it on re-release, and can get the date from your erockets orders, that would be great. Thanks in advance for any help.

Dates from my instructions. Some instructions only have the Semroc release date, not the eRockets re-release date. All kits were purchased from eRockets within the past 4 or 5 years, IIRC.

The waybak machine for both the old Semroc and erockets sites around the time the Semroc sale was announced on 1/16/15 indicates there were still a few Semroc kits on both sites avaialble, and the Semroc site was down after that date. From that, I think Randy didn't announce releasing kits that he had on hand or recieved from Semroc in the beginning of 2015, unless he re-kitted them.

Still looking for any info on erockets release date, release announcement, or instructions after 2015, or date you purchased from erockets (go to account,orders completed) for these:

KA-5 April Dancer
KA-4 Astro-Jr
KA-23 Astron
KA-19 Earmark
KV-67 Magnum Sprint
KA-21 Mini Aero-Dart
KA-28 Mini Centurion
KA-26 Mini Optima
KA-6 My Boid
KM-4 Omega Payload
KV-79 Sam 3
KLV-16 SLS Javelin
KA-3 Squire
KV-24 Swift
KA-13 Yung'un's Nuke

No, I think it was a bonus kit from Semroc.

I recently received several eRockets/Semroc kit orders that contained discontinued kits.

One was an Estes Shrike.

The instructions list an original release date of July 17, 2011 and eRockets release date of December 30, 2015.
