FreeForAll Forum

The FreeForAll forum is where members can gather to chat about almost anything, rocketry or non-rocketry in nature with the exception of items listed in the General Rules section above. If you have something to say that doesn't fit into any other forum, or just want to BS, this is the place. Unfortunately, due to a few people abusing the original intent of the FreeForAll forum all posts there will now be moderated.
