Good luck with the move Darren, and all the best for Christmas.

Well guys, the site is now "switched off". Actually, it is still on so you can view and websurf the products - but the cart function of the software has been deactivated.

I will switch everything back on after I am settled, have set everything back up, done a stocktake and have an Internet connection again.

Thanks everyone for their kind comments, well wishes and fantastic support in 2009.

While Suburban Rocketry does produce some commercial benefit, more accurately I would describe it as a "labour of love". It has been a pleasure supplying products that I know people purchase to enjoy. It's actually quite an honour to be involved in this way, so again - I would like to thank those who have supported SR and I look forward to more of the same in 2010 and beyond.

This is a very exciting move for myself and family and one that I hope will be everything we imagine.

If this turns out to be my last post for 2009 I hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year. Talk to you all in 2010!

Hi guys,

Well we are now living in Wauchope. My stock has been set back up and obviously I now have an Internet connection which strangely enough seems quicker than my city connection... No complaints about that!

I have set my stock back up but as it has been over two years since I did a stock take I think this is the ideal opportunity to re-count my stock and give a thorough check-over for damaged stock. None of my boxes were crushed during the move so I am quietly confident that there will be no damages.

I am aiming to re-activate the site by the 11th, earlier if I can get everything counted beforehand.

Once I have done my stock take I will urgently need to place stock orders with LOC, Semroc, Fliskits, Apogee and perhaps Binder. I will automatically order some of the new releases from these manufacturers but as usual if there is something in particular anyone is after - don't be afraid to ask.

Glad to be back (almost anyway)!

Good to see you back Bones ! Hope your new year will be best ever. :)

Ps. I would have been VERY surprised if you would have some broken goods as you are the "master packager". :wink:

It was good to meet up over the holidays - I can attest to the fact that he now has a LOT of room to store rocket bits. :D

Just a quick update guys....

It has taken longer than anticipated to get everything back-up and running, however - I am now close to switching the site back on.

Hopefully by Monday the 18th everything will be back to normal. Apologies for the delay, I was a bit optimistic with my previous estimate. :oops:
