Found a Shirt in the Wardrobe

I found a shirt, in a bag, in the bottom of the wardrobe. I now need to wash it and wear it sometime :)

I have been known to purchase West Systems products through Carbatec. Sometimes their selection can be a little limited.

Re: Hello from Melbourne

Welcome to the forum DB :) . I assume you know that Melbourne Uni has a high-power rocketry club? As for local clubs, MARS flies out of Drouin mostly, with an 8k' ceiling, and Tripoli flies out of Serpentine with a 25k' ceiling. Here are details of the Tripoli website: http://www.tripoli.org.au/ Lau...

Sounds like you got a good gig at Stromlo 8) .

Parkes is great for a behind-the-scenes tour. Did that back last April. Nice to see some Agilent equipment in the racks.
