G'Day from Germany

Postby mgaertne » Mon Dec 29, 2014 7:12 pm

G'day for everyone and a happy new year to come!

I recently joined this forum to be able to discuss the Thunda Down Under event.
And since I'm in the process of relocating to Australia (well, my wife will come next year, myself in probably three years) I like to start the contacts for rocketry as well.

Rocketry related I'm the TRA-prefect of the prefecture #123, Germany and the vice president of the largest rocketry-club in Germany.Our RJD-event is the largest/longest on the continent (not counting the GB island), lasting 4 days.
I hold my level 3 for several years now (TRA #10915) and have bult and flown quite a range of rockets.

For Thunda Down under I built a MD rocket with an CTI O3400 motor. Will be fun to launch...

For a living I'm working as an professional expert witness for Information Technology. We recently launched our business in Australia to be able to sustain our living here

Cheers

Hi Mathias and welcome to the forum and later to this great country called Australia ! :D

You are well experienced rocketeer indeed and your project for the THUNDA sounds awesome.....actually very similar to mine ! :P

By the way, I was born in Finland so not that far from you. I have been here since 1969 and watched the moon landing here as a school boy. :)

Looking forward to meeting you very soon !

Thank you all :-)
I'm quite regular in Australia, in fact I hold an unsponsored residency via :-)

I'm really looking forward settling in Sydney rather sooner than later but business must be sorted first.

Anyway, could someone call Blake and tell him that his mail-server (info@ausrocketry.com.au) is rejecting emails because of
"452 insufficient resources". He might need to delete some files from the hard-disk; in case he is using Exchange (oh my!) this system will need at least 4GB of free space.

I will show my project quite soon in the appropriate topic, no worries

Hi Mathias

Welcome to Australia. I too immigrated here 10 years ago on New Years Day. I'm in Sydney as well so maybe we can meet up sometime.

Cheers

Chris

Guten Tag Mathias,

Welcome to our little part of the world which by the sounds of it you will most likely become a regular.

Your move to Australia sounds very exciting. As you have probably seen, we have some amazing launch sites here (in particular in QLD where Thunda is being held).

Thanks for the tech support, however this was already under control. I am in the process of updating a number of servers and my own exchange server decided to re-activate WSUS. Some stupid amount of updates were downloaded whilst sleeping and sure enough, resources depleted. All good now and I see an email from you which I will respond to shortly.

Hello all,
now, I'm back in Australia and this time for good. We've settled in the Sydney area and I'm looking forward to the australian rocketry :-)
I still have to bring my stuff over here so except for some hpr motor casings I have nothing yet to fly. But that will change.
See you all sometimes

Thanks mate,
well foremost it will be Sunseeker II on Thunda II. This time a bit more sophisticated built.
What else, I'm not sure. Depends on how many times I fly to Germany. I'd like to do a drag race with myself, 3 different sized Bullpuppies/Bulldogs...

Hi Mathias,
If you're in need of a rocketry "fix", you're most welcome to come along to the next NSWRA launch day on 24th Feb.
Our model rocket site is in western Sydney

Hi,
too late :-) Been there last Saturday.
Currently I do not have anything flyable here, all left in Germany. But will do some shipment.
I'm really into high power I must say. My hands are too clumsy to work on small models, small spaces just don't agree with me when it comes to rocketry
