Twice a BAR.  Flew rockets a lot in the late 60's and early 70's.   Had a resurgence in the mid-90's, culminating in competing in NARAM 38 at Evansville and obtained a level one certification.  Now it's 2019 and I have the bug again,  Will work towards reobtaining level 1 certification.  Member of the AMOREA section in Indianapolis and look forward to NARAM at Muncie Indiana.
