ROCKETS Magazine August 2011

Postby Wingnut » Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:29 pm

You may be wondering: "I haven't received a copy of ROCKETS Magazine for a while!!!"

Well, Bob and Neil have experienced some production issues. The printery they were using has closed down and they've had some "technical issues" with the new printers. Rest assured that the August issue of ROCKETS Magazine is coming soon-ish. They should be shipped from the USA in about another two week's time.

I'll keep you posted as more news comes to hand.

Ciao,
Mike

After a long delay in the mail from the USA (over 4 weeks), the August 2011 issues of ROCKETS Magazine arrived today. They will be consigned to the tender care of Australia Post on Tuesday (24th January) and should be hitting letter boxes across Australia on Wednesday and Thursday.

If your magazine subscription is close to running out (see details on the envelope sticker), you should consider renewing your subscription on-line. It takes 5 minutes on the ROCKETS Magazine website. Don't forget to select "Australia" in the Delivery drop-down field.

Happy reading!

Ciao,
Mike

If you'd like to obtain a copy, please drop me a PM.

Bye,

Unfortunately the rain on the gold coast was not as kind and I don't think any sort of bagging was going to save my copy :-( (I am only a 2min drive to where some of the bad flash flooding occurred and swept a car away)

I layed it down to dry out, but it all stuck to the garage floor. I can only partly open one page, which is also shredded.

Every cloud has a silver lining though and a HUGE thanks goes out to Mike who has sent another copy which I should see shortly :-)

All the guys at Rockets Magazine do a great job and I really appreciate the awesome customer service!

Greg's all sorted with a copy of the August 2011 issue. I still have some spares if anyone else would like to obtain a copy.

Thanks for the happy replies.

Hi Tim,

The last issue produced for 2011 was August, and it arrived in late January 2012. It would appear that Bob and Neil have re-synchronised the magazine dates following their production issues. So the sequence of magazines is June 2011... August 2011... February 2012. You will probably receive the February 2012 issue in the next, as I have a parcel awaiting collection at Australia Post. It should be the magazines as they are due and I haven't ordered any other rocketry stuff for ages.

Understandably the re-synchronised magazine dates will throw out the anniversary of everybody's subscriptions as we have effectively missed the publication of 2 issues.

Ciao,
Mike
