Bracha and Roger Smith Purchase JonRocket.com

JonRocket.com Under New Management

(PAYLOADBAY.COM, June 5, 2009) Oviedo, FL --Roger Smith, maintainer of PayloadBay.com, writes:

My wife, Bracha, and I are pleased to announce that we have acquired JonRocket.com, a direct-sales company supplying model rocket kits and parts from a variety of manufacturers.

Roger and Bracha Smith of JonRocket.com

John (not Jon) Arthur started JonRocket.com five years ago to offer a "one-stop" site to purchase rocket kits from multiple manufacturers. Under John's stewardship, JonRocket.com has grown into one of the most trusted online sources of model rocket kits and parts.

Bracha and I are committed to continuing the example set by Mr. Arthur.

Our plan is to match John's excellent record of service to JonRocket.com's customers and his commitment to the rocketry community. We intend to continue supporting the National Association of Rocketry's NARTREK program and the JonRocket.com 'Virtual Vendor' program. And we are exploring additional ways we can encourage young people to learn about science and technology through the exciting hobby of model rocketry.

For a short period of time, the JonRocket.com web site will be off-line as it is updated. The new site will offer an improved shopping experience. At first, most of the products previously offered by JonRocket.com will be offered. Over time, we will add new products including some available exclusively through JonRocket.com.

Please be patient as we work on the new web site and re-start the company.

JonRocket.com is a web-based direct retailer of model rocket kits, parts, and supplies. Founded in 2004 by John Arthur, JonRocket.com is now owned and run by Roger and Bracha Smith.

Roger Smith is the creator of PayloadBay.com, a web site dedicated to sport rocketry.

Bracha Smith is a retired educator (and Roger's wife).

Roger and Bracha are members of the Northeast Florida Association of Rocketry (NEFAR) and Rocketry of Orlando's Community Kids (ROCK). They regularly attend NEFAR, ROCK, and other launches in Florida --often accompanied by a four-foot tall, furry, spider-like rocket named "Akavish."
