GOOD LUCK ROCKETRY PROVIDES ONSITE VENDOR SUPPORT

Bernie Lalime (Good Luck Rocketry) has supported SRA for many years, however he has announced that he will no longer be providing on-site support. Bernie will continue to be a supplier for SRA and he will fulfill orders via e-mail. No shipping or Haz-Mat fees will be incurred. Bernie will transfer ordered items to one of the SRA members who see him on a regular basis at the NEFAR launch (second Saturday) and they will deliver the items at the SRA launch the following week. Payment arrangements will be worked out between Bernie and the purchaser.
