Busy week
Did two sets of Federal taxes, Davids last estate and my own personal taxes. I expect a nice refund.

I will have to scatter Dave's ashes in the garden at Glimmerglas house this spring. Let me know if you are interested in attending and what dates are good. I meant to do it last Memorial Day, but certain important people were not available that weekend.

Sunday I lead a build session of a peanut scale Sonda I. I designed the kit for our club to use. The Sonda I is a Brazilian rocket that looks cool and goes together relatively easily. The kit has separate parts for each color so that the painting is fairly straight forward. The models went together quickly and a good time was had by all.

I ordered new bifocal reading/computer glasses. I had some pretty precise ideas of what I wanted and the glasses lady seemed to appreciate my planning. All my figuring of diopters (1/focal length in meters) went for naught because she measured things in inches and converted anyway. I should get the new specs next week, just in time for my trip to Hawaii.

Good on you about the taxes!

What is "peanut scale"?

Peanut Scale is a model rocket scale event where the models have a maximum size limit. You get to choose length or diameter. The models we chose to build are less than the 2 centimeter diameter limit. The alternative is building a model less than 30 centimeters in length. (It can be both, but doesn't have to be.)

The opposite of Peanut Scale is Giant Scale. There the model must be at least 1 meter long or 100 centimeters in diameter.

Both events fall in the overall event of Sport Scale.

The weekends of the 16th and the 23rd are open and part of the weekend of the 30th, but I don't know which part yet.
