Great.

Do you have to actually be a Tripoli member to claim a record or just at a Tripoli launch or just witnessed by Tripoli TAP?

I was still a TRA member at the time of that flight, but I'm putting all my focus on the AMRS nowadays.

Yeah Matt you do have to be a TRA member to claim a TRA record. But there are heaps of AMRS records that you can attempt to set http://rocketry.org.au/education/records/
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

It would be nice Ari, however both NAR and TRA record rules state that you need to be a member of the respective organisation to set a record and it doesn't appear that either NAR or TRA acknowledges records set by the other. It would also mean that low power records would need to compete with the rare air of Colorado.

Ari, I'm not worried about this at all. Rocketry in Australia has NEVER been in better shape! We're flying bigger and better rockets at events that we could only have dreamed of a few years ago. We have an organisation that is run by us & for us and we have the best ever rapport with the various local regulators, insurers and the bulk of the international organisations. We have vibrant and active clubs all over the place and new ones on the horizon, our numbers are higher than ever and we have spectacular projects coming up :)

I reckon we have a lot to be grateful for and the few negative bits-and-pieces won't matter in the long run!
