Thanks to all for another great year!
We hope your year has been wonderful. Model rocketry is still the best hobby ever. We have been adding new customers almost every day. There are still some that have not rediscovered their hobby, but many of you have been welcome sights and mentors to the oldcomers and newcomers that have. Remember to work with the kids to ensure the hobby continues for the next 50 years.
Our eighth annual Christmas gift to the SAM Team!
This will be our eighth year of our 50% discount program. This year, as last, it is open to SAM members only. The maximum discounted amount is limited to 20% of your total purchases from our online store over the past year. So, if you ordered $100.00 online during this year, your discount on an order over $40.00 would be $20.00. On smaller orders, it would be limited to 50% of the total. When you login to your account, the maximum value will be displayed. The 50% discount is on our entire line, including kits, parts, supplies, and gift certificates! This offer expires December 24, 2012 at midnight. It can only be used once per customer. It is only for our existing online customers as of December 17, 2012. Gift Certificates can be used for one year from date of purchase for online orders from semroc.com. Gift certificates can not be used with any other discounts. Our minimum order is $10.00 after all discounts are applied. Just enter Christmas in the Discount Code and it will automatically calculate your discount. If you are not a SAM member yet, it is not too late to join and still be credited for your purchases this past year.
Another Christmas gift for everyone...
Between now and December 24, we will ship everything by First Class or Priority Mail for no additional charge. If an additional charge shows up in the shipping section, just check the button with no charge. Parcel Post and FedEx are starting to take even longer to deliver. As always, most of our orders ship in less than 24 hours and all orders received before 3:00 pm weekdays and 10:00 am Saturday go out the same day.
SAM - Semroc Astronautic Modelers Team
short for Semroc Astronautic Modeler and describes a Family
of Friends that are the biggest fans and supporters of Semroc. Back
in the 1960ís we called our customers Astronautic Modelers, instead
of Model Rocketeers, because it seemed more appropriate in the midst
of the Space Race.
We have wanted to do something to recognize this growing number of mutual fans and make them all closer members of our family. The idea is based on the EAC and CAT that were popular in the past with other model rocket companies. We are attempting to bring that close relationship into the 21st century. If you have placed over $100.00 in online orders with us in the past year, you are already a SAM! We just need to get you registered. If you are new to Semroc, you can still take advantage of the membership benefits for an introductory price of $10.00 for your first year. As always, current NAR members receive a 10% discount and SAM members receive an additional 10% discount for a total of 20% for SAM members that are also NAR members.
We have just released the Deci-Scale Nike-Tomahawk and the 1/20 scale MX-744. The Nike-Tomahawk is a 1/10 scale model of the sounding rocket. Over 3 feet tall, the Nike-Tomahawk is the latest in our Deci-Scale line. The MX-744 Hiroc scale model is over 19" tall and is a good first scale model. Called the "American V-2", the MX-744 was America's first large rocket using gimballed engines. Since NARAM, we released the Der V-1.5 , a 1/2 scale of the classic Ver V-3, and the Omega Payload kit.
In the works are the Starship Excalibur (for early 2013 availability), Egg Crate, Sky Jumper, ThunderStorm and many more! Watch our website and Ye Olde Rocket Forum for announcements of these kits and other exciting new products you have been asking for.

If you are already a SAM and do not have access to the private forum, contact us so we can get you connected.
We will be attending and sponsoring NARAM and possibly attending NSL. Semroc is already planning several surprises for NARAM-55 coming up this summer in Ohio. We hope to see many of you there. See more details at www.naram.org in the coming weeks.
