Tripoli-Colorado Has Vendors!
Tripoli-Colorado has vendors who come out to many of our launches. Please be sure to drop by and visit them when you're at a launch, and let them know how much we appreciate their support. And be sure to buy lots of stuff from them, too!

Cool Rocket Stuff
Most of you know me. We've been flying rockets together for over a decade. I'm Jon Skuba, the Chief Technical Geek for Cool Rocket Stuff. (Of course I'm the only technical geek.) Cool Rocket Stuff is my mobile rocketry supply store bringing popular products and a few unique offerings to you right where you use them. For major items, this saves you the cost of shipping while for smaller items you also have the convenience of having these products available to you in case you forget something at home or damage a critical item in an earlier flight. At Cool Rocket Stuff you can find:
- Madcow Rocketry kits and components
- Top Flight Recovery parachutes and chute protectors
- Missileworks electronics
- Ejection charge cups
- Rail buttons
- Kevlar shock cords
- Centering rings and bulkheads
- Magnelite igniters and igniter kits
- Quest motors and kits
- Grit Stix
Hardware products including quick-links, U-bolts, pop rivets, and nylon screws
I hope to see you at any of our great local launch ranges: TC's Hartsel site, SCORE's Hudson Ranch, or NCR's Pawnee Grasslands sites. Or you can call me at 303-817-5303.
Altus Metrum is a leading manufacturer of flight computers and other electronics used in the rocketry hobby, including GPS and radio telemetry. All are completely open hardware and open source designs. The first-ever flight of a prototype of AltusMetrum's first product TeleMetrum happened at a Tripoli Colorado launch, and Bdale Garbee and his son Robert continue to frequently attend our launches to test fly new designs. Bdale is more likely to be found flying and talking about what he and his business partner Keith Packard are working on next than selling, but is happy to save you a few dollars of shipping by delivering online orders in-person at launches in Colorado.
