9.5 Aside from hanging around 'old timers', how can I learn more about competition strategies and techniques without re-inventing the wheel many times over?

The best place to start looking would be the NAR Technical Services
(NARTS) catalog. NARTS has several documents of particular interest to
competitors. The NARTS catalog can be browsed at the NAR web site -
http://www.nar.org/ Look for the NARTS catalog, and when browsing
through it, look for these titles:

US Record Setting Designs

CMASS Plan Book

MIT Competition Notebook

Journals of the MIT Rocket Society...

Proceedings of the MIT Model Rocket Conventions...

NAR Technical Reviews, Volumes 1 - 7

Boost Glider Analysis-"A Free Flight Method For Boost Glider Analysis."

Streamer Duration Optimization

Basic Design Rules for Boost and Rocket Gliders

Another great place to find information is on the internet where you
can do keyword searches at places such as Deja/Google. Be sure and
check out the various on-line club newsletters available as the
various contest reports also contain useful information.
