New here, lots to learn

Postby grae72 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 3:10 pm

Hi everyone, I am new to rocketry, but it's something I've always wanted to get into. I live in Bunbury (WA) and intend to rock up to one of the WARS launch days later this year and have a look around (and join). In the meantime I plan to grab a starter kit and just have a play. I can see there's lots to learn first though...

Welcome to the forum grae. Yep. So much to learn.

WARS will trigger an addiction response I think. :)

Welcome to the forum! As a member of WARS I can say that we'd love for you to come out and have a look. Here's our current 2018 launch schedule.

Hopefully you can make it down.

In the interim if you're looking to source a starter kit I'd recommend clicking on the banner image at the top of this page. :D
