The February 2005 MASA meeting was held on the 3rd
at the Science Museum. There were 14 people in attendance.
NARCON - March 11 through 13 in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Quite a few MASA-ites plan to attend. A few of them are
even giving presentations!
The progress of some of the local TARC teams was
discussed. We will possibly be scheduling additional
launches at Apple Valley High School again this year to help
TARC teams who need to make their qualification flights.
The February launch will be at Sunrise Park Middle School in
White Bear Lake.
We need to vote on the 2005 badge design soon, so that
production can begin on them.
