Time to unwind
It has been incredibly stressful this week with the loss of Dave. This afternoon I will have a chance to unwind with friends. My model rocket club, SMASH, is holding its long scheduled after-the-holidays party. To quote from the club web page:

"Members of SMASH will celebrate and share the past years accomplishments. There will also be a Rambo gift exchange."

"Rambo gift exchange is always an entertaining way to give a gift in a large group.. Everyone attending the party that wants to participate in the exchange must bring a wrapped rocketry related gift. Gifts must be worth at least $10 and up to $15.. The game begins with all of the wrapped gifts on a table. Each person draws a number. A number is pulled out of the hat and that person who's number is selected chooses a gift to unwrap from the table. The gift is shown to the group who gives their Ooh's and Aha's. The first person selects a number from the hat for the next person to select a gift. That person has their choice to take a gift from someone or select from the table. This goes on until the last person decides on taking a gift or going to the table to select the last gift. The event is best when there is a lot of stealing going on. All gifts do not have to be serious, more comical rocketry related gifts are good too."

The last battle of the Great Holiday War. And I'm spoiling for a fight.

Ah, yes--a chance to get rid of something you know you'll never get around to building in exchange for a cool new thing that you'll probably never get around to building, but just might.

Have fun! Rocket people are good people.

The Last Ticket

I got the very last, which is to say best, ticket called. I grabbed a "Metalizer", an all chrome >shiny< easy to put together kit from Nancy the Rocket Mom. This started a bloody chain reaction that ended with only about two open gifts left. I got the fight I needed so badly. The trophy of the battle, now fully assembled, sits on my dinning room table. Life is good.
