Today was supposed to be the day our model rocket club, SMASH, built helicopter recovery models. I had even convinced my 14 and 16 year old nephews Patrick and Andy to come along and build models today. While they were en route, I received an email canceling the build session due to bad weather.
My nephews, ever resilient, decided to take over my computer with its high speed internet connection unavailable at either of their homes. They had a great day. Meanwhile, I ended up on a conference call with other members of our club discussing the current state of planning for NARAM (the national model rocket contest) to be held here in the greater Kalamazoo, Michigan area next summer.
