    There is a Rocket Club in Potter NY on route 364 near Penn Yan next to a Bar that sets off rockets two times each month in summer. Some real cool fun stuff there. My brother has like 30 of them, some are like 7ft. tall rockets ya need to be certified for. They run GPS and trackers, Tracers etc... on them, Cameras etc... Lotta fun... Some of the people there are not like the old 1960 rockets ya had as a kid. They are costly ones $$$$ LOL... pretty cool though...

    I'm building a 3in. tube by 5ft. tall one now for fun in winter inside home. My brother gave me some fire retardant cloth to use for wading to not burn the chute. That way I can use the wading over again instead of buying the normal throw away wading that blows out... The Wading and chute will all be connected to nose cone as it blows off opening the chute. Going to custom paint the rocket, or I'll cut out custom graphics on vinyl cutter for it...
