    Bring anything that you find interesting about rocketry to demonstrate what it meant for you and what you did or didn't learn from it.
    Bring your memorbelia to share with others. Give a little history on it if you can.
    Do you still have that weird or unique rocket you built. Bring your rocket plans and any notes you are willing to share.
    Got some really old stuff to show and share with us? Bring it and you could win a special prize.

    If it's rocketry related bring it.
    Got any old kits, plans, ideas, tips, accessories, thoughts, deals, support equipment? Bring it.
    Got any really neat NEW stuff? Bring it and you could win a special prize for it too.
