    I wanted to issue a public thank you to Dagabu. So, THANKS DAG! You have been a source of inspiration for me, and no doubt others as well. Your assistance in organizing the auction, and your generosity in donating your go-getter pump are both demonstrations of your selflessness, and kind heart. Thank you for everything. You rock!

    1# rocket test today, new tooling I made, closer to BP core specs, same length , but all other aspects diffent. Used my pine BP + mineral oil, shot a 520g payload with two sticks ( 50g) capped with Sali Whistle for delay, nice lift, great sound and plenty of height for a 4" header !! Man that was a Great Test !! big smiles :)
