No, that's not the official site as I mentioned in my reply. The videos are on this page:

Tune in again for more Penrose Intrigue.


I've been wondering about this Aerospace Division since the website first mentioned it a few months ago. And I noted that Ellis was not part of the NARCON stuff. And that during one of Bill's presentations at NARCON, a toast popup from outlook came up from Mallory. I know that there's a Ga Tech studient that spent the summer in Penrose as an intern on a project where he worked on a L or larger class motor.

But wait, Chandra's gone??!!

Chandra is Mary Roberts' daughter. Was apparently groomed to take over for Mary upon her retirement, which is why it's surprising to me that she's no longer with the company.

Chandra Serfoss is the daughter of Christine Swartz, the much loved customer support person at Estes, who passed away a few years ago. Chandra organized the Estes Tour during NARAM-60. You would be hard/pressed to meet a more delightful lady. Obviously a lot like her mother.

She was at Estes many years, so this is some very sad news.



Mary's daughter, not Christine's.

"Estes Model Rockets" is a fan-run group (not page)

"Estes Rockets" is the official company page (not group)

I know, Facebook's group/page stuff is stupidly confusing.
