Open Forums are
sessions where most of the talking is done by those
attending it. A topic is announced, and the attendees
exchange ideas and opinions while discussing it. A moderator
is present to keep the discussion on track and to make notes
of any breakthroughs.
Rocketeer’s and Old Rockets Open House and Forum - Bob Kaplow
Old-timers and Born-Again Rocketeers gather to show off their vintage rockets and clones,
and to regale you with tall tales of “Back In My Day…” We'd
like to encourage those attending to bring old rocketry
memorabilia (built rockets, kits, motors, catalogs, parts,
ephemera, etc.) of their own to "show off" as part of
the Old Rockets display on Saturday afternoon and evening.
