It was only a matter of time....
A-ha!  I've found yet another forum to infiltrate....

Lot's of names here that look vaguely familiar.

A little bit about me....
I hail from sunny Castle Rock, Colorado, but am originally from Colorado Springs.
BAR since May, 2016, when I found a box of my old rocket stuff in the basement.
First exposure to model rocketry - 1969 - visited NARAM-11 as a spectator.
Avid model rocketeer - 1973 -1983.
Ex-NAR member #25180.  Member of (long-defunct) Rocky Mountain Association of Rocketry (ROMAR) section 331
Served as Mountain States Regional Manager of the NAR  - 1979-1983.
CD for several of the HOTROC regional contests - 1980-1983.

Main areas of interest in model rocketry - LPR sport flying; scale, futuristic, and boost/gliders (as soon as a few get built), and writing a model rocketry blog.

Other interests:   Musician (semi-pro)- electric violin and fingerstyle acoustic guitar, mandolin; Avid hand-tool-only woodworker (Neanderthal), Cartooning, and various other minor hobbies.

Two grand-kiddoes (so far) that will soon become budding model rocketeers.

Occupation:  Electronics R&D Hardware Lab manager for a large, well-known satellite TV company.

"The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack." 
"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

Wow. Cool launch pads on your blog.
