Burnt Offerings Appease the Rocket Gods (7/14/1998)

The first annual MASA summer picnic and bovine sacrifice took place Tuesday at the home of MASA president Russ Durkee.  Ten club members were on hand to partake in the event which included an unsanctioned watermelon seed spitting contest, lots of rocket talk, and a rocket giveaway.  Several kits were generously provided courtesy of Alan Estenson and Hub Hobby Center, Little Canada.  The Fox family walked away with the majority of the prizes by taking home a Black Brant kit (with mighty D engines!), an Estes Mosquito, and two other kits.  Carl Persson's fine video premiered later in the evening featuring launch views from his Bucket-Cam.  A good time was had by all. Abundant rain fell later in the evening as sure indication that the Rocket Gods were pleased.   Look for more events like this one after the snow flies in the winter.
