Does anyone know if tailgaters will be allowed, or is this exclusive to the vendors listed?
This would be a great time to sell off my classic collection to fellow rocketeers.

What 'cha got Dewalt? I have been trying to sell off extra kits only to find that a good number of them have deteriorating bags. I have had the pleasure of knowing the Estes and Piesters for years and have avoided asking them to sign items. But, I may have to impose on them for a couple of things. I have two Estes Antares kits. My only child is named Antares...

I'm still looking for a Centuri Payloader II kit with the balsa nose cone vs the later plastic cone. That was my first rocket.

About 40 years of Centuri and Estes kits , parts, catalogs, aftermarket decals, plans ,motors ect ect.
More stuff then I could ever build and really no place to keep it anymore.

LTV - I have a Payloader II with the balsa cone but it is built.

Any chance you have a 1967 Estes catalog in really nice shape? Been trying to get one forever.

My early Estes catalogs are in fair condition after decades of much perusal, but are not for sale. The 1964 catalog has a loose cover and some young idiot (me) wrote in it. IIRC, there wasn't a '65 catalog as they were transitioning to color. I remember coming home and the 1966 catalog had arrived.

There is a group of early Estes catalogs on e-bay with a starting price of $100.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Es...5.c100005.m1851


I copied the back cover of the 1967 catalog to document the color of the Farside-X model that the Pod Bay Doors flew at NARAM-54. Won Team Division and it is hanging with other models in the "spray" at the Museum of Flight in Flight in Seattle.
