Happy Birthday Vern, and thanks for the last 51 (for me) years of model rocketry. Below is the Sky Hook you signed for me at NARAM 50, along with the 2 oldest rockets I still have from 1967. Not sure what happened to the ring tail on the Sprite, but heck, I was 12

Happy birthday sir! Many thanks for not just creating a safe and fun hobby, but one that inspires some to become engineers, scientists and even a few astronauts.
