T-shirts with the patch are listed in the SpaceX shop, but currently "out of stock." :(

They went in stock about an hour after I posted that. Ordered one right away.  :D

As noted, as the flight rate increases, having a party thread for each mission could be a bit messy, so we said we'd go with a general party thread for "regular" missions and reserve the specific party threads to CRS missions and big events like the first FH, Dragon 2 and so on.

Following suggestions and a vote for a winner, the title has now been selected.

BYOLF: "The Bring-Your-Own-Liquid-Fuel" General Party Thread."

Solid fuel munchies, too. We like to be inclusive.

The very obvious title: Launch and land and relaunch party!
Any day with a rocket landing is a fantastic day.

And finally, as a play on the saying "we're successful when launches are boring", I suggest the "No launch is ever boring SpaceX Party thread".

So we need a suggestion for the title of the general party thread title, with the suggestion with the most likes becoming the title of this thread.

Such as "SpaceX Falcon 9 'Jim says it's only a ComSat Launch' Party Thread." ;D

Well I guess we can keep using this party thread until we suffer a collapsed landing leg and the thread tips over and is destroyed.   ;)

No! We'd spill our fuels all over the barge deck and ruin our barbeque solid fuel prep! We'd have to invoke 5-second rules for eating cleanup!

You know what happens if we have a straight open vote: 
we may end up with the  "Boaty McBoat Face" Party Thread
