Confused. Post #1 is CrankKong saying "you left out...." Where is the list and where are the other posts?

Never mind. Found it.

May I suggest some club name acronyms?

MDRA - Maryland/Delaware Rocketry Association
SARA - Southern Arizona Rocketry Association
URRG - Upstate Research Rocketry Group
URRF - Upstate Research Rocketry Festival
MARS - Monroe Astronautical Rocketry Society
OROC - Oregon Rocketry
NARHAMS - National Association of Rocketry Historic AstroModeling Section

Also, AMW - Animal Motor Works (vendor)

NARCON - National Association of Rocketry Convention
NARAM - National Association of Rocketry Annual Meeting
BALLS - Big Ass Load Lifting Suckers

A bunch more from the competition faction -
RG - Rocket Glider (what goes up must glide down, unlike BG cannot drop anything)
ELA - Eggloft Altitude
ELD - Eggloft Duration
PMC - Plastic Model Conversion (always scary)
PD - Parachute Duration (never used for the much newer Predicted Duration event)
SD - Streamer Duration
CD - Contest Director
SRA - Supperroc Altitude
SRD - Supperroc Duration
HD - Helicopter Duration
DQ - Disqualified! ("Did you DQ today?")
DEL - Dual Eggloft. The obvious DELA and DELD have not come into wide use.
FAI - Federation Aeronautique Internationale (world aviation sanctioning body)
NAA - National Aeronautic Association (USA aviation sanctioning body)
TARC - Team America Rocket Challenge
