Excerpt from 2012-08-11 blog post

From https://doctroid.wordpress.com/2012/08/11/uke-six-oh-and-uke-five-and-oh/:

Sue and Al spent some time with us, and gave Kenny some late birthday presents including a couple of model rocket kits; Kenny also dug out some of his old model rockets. One of the new ones was a big “Magician” that can take an E motor… three of which he also got. Monday was the first Monday of the month, which meant it was the day of the Syracuse Rocket Club meeting at Walt’s Hobby Shop, something we’ve never gone to in part because Mondays we’re usually at the dojo until the end of my class, but due to my plantar fasciitis I wasn’t training. So… we went. Found five middle-aged guys sitting around a table. Kenny pulled up a chair. Some of them didn’t seem to know what to make of him but one was happy to talk, and they gave him yet another model rocket; meantime we’d been told about their launch on the 18th, featuring egg payloads, and then we found the store had an Estes Eggscaliber kit so… so we’re making an egg-carrying rocket. Also E motor capable, though the egg launch will be limited to D motors.
