So… 12 months today!

Postby Bones » Wed Oct 01, 2008 9:18 am

Today marks the one year anniversary Suburban Rocketry opened its doors. Woohoo!

At this stage not sure what the next step will be but I would like to add more MPR products to the range, especially building supplies. I have some big changes coming around mid next year (a relocation) - This will create more space and help make stocking MPR a real practical possibility. This seems like a natural progression and is also in sync with my own developing interest in regards to the bigger stuff…

Ultimately though, low power rocketry is where I think Suburban Rocketry belongs and my commitment towards this level will not change. If anything, the available range for LPR will continue to grow.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their great support over the last 12 months. I set out to create a local source of interesting competitively priced rocket goodies and offer reliable service in the process, hopefully Suburban Rocketry is headed in the right direction towards this goal.

Cheers!
Darren

I'd also like to add my congratulations.

Darren not only packs his material so well that it takes half an hour to get to the goodies! He is also very attentive to the skill level of his customers. When a total newbee like myself comes along he manages to give the right advice and guidance, while making sure that they are encouraged to build and launch!

I can't believe that Darren is getting rich with model rocketry given the tiny margins and relatively small market in Australia but I'd be happy if I was wrong and wish him every success.

May there be many more happy returns for Suburban Rocketry!!!

I can highly recommend Suburban Rocketry.

More orders coming soon Darren!

Regards, Steve.

Having trouble getting the stuff from my local source lately. I use this elastic as well in my own kits...

I have been using the red elastic as an alternative, it is just as strong.

Congrats on your first year Bones!

Your commitment to the hobby, and your support for your customers, is a credit to you.
