The Hat of Death in the Apogee Newsletter

W00t! My Sweat Stained Clifton Tracking Station Hat of Death is featured in this month's EMRR Corner in Apogee Newsletter #209.

I'm honored that the Hat of Death was chosen to represent the Essence of the odd-roc!

What is an Odd-Roc: 1) Slang term for a strange-looking rocket. Odd-rocs are often made in the shape of other, non-rocketry-related items. [from EMRR Rocket Glossary];
2) Anything clearly not originally intended to fly. Odd shapes, odd conversions. The antithesis of 3FNC [from Apogee Newsletter 43];
3) Are strange looking things that often shouldn’t fly. (And sometimes don’t!) [ Dick’s Rocket Dungeon]
Don't forget EMRR's odd-roc photo contest is underway!
