About Uncle Mikes Rocket Shack
Hello and welcome to Uncle Mikes Rocket Shack. I'm Mike. I got that name from many of the school children who I have introduced to model
rocketry. The "Shack" is actually my shed where I put all my "Rocket Projects" together. So when it came time to open up a business "Uncle
Mikes Rocket Shack" was born.
Rocketry for me started in 1975 during what could be called a heyday of rocketry. Remained in it until 1979 when I decided to let Uncle Sam
become my employer. After being honorably discharged in 1984, I found other things in life to take up my time, school, girls, cars and playing
baseball and football. After retiring in 2001 I needed a hobby to occupy my idle time, so I turned to my old friend rocketry.
I started selling on EBay around 2001. While selling off some old Estes kits I had laying around from the 70's that I was never going to build
anyway, I discovered that the hobby of rocketry was enjoying a rebirth of sorts. However I noticed things weren't as cheap as they once were in
the 70's. So I got involved in buying wholesale and selling on EBay. Eventually I saw a need for an  online web store that would sell real cheap a
few dollars over cost, instead of the high markups on the Internet I see. That's when
www.unclemikesrocketshack.com was born.

I promise to always try and sell cheaper than anybody else on the web, and offer quality kits. I want to make this hobby as CHEAP as possible
so a whole new generation of kids & children can enjoy "lighting one off" with their parents and friends. For me rocketry has always been a
great family hobby something I wish to see continue in the future.
