February 2005 Meeting Minutes (2/4/2005)

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.

Show & Tell

  • Mark Thell brought a Semroc Rock-a-Chute clone and a Dr Zooch Saturn 1B kit.

  • Stuart Lenz brought a whole batch of new MicroMaxx rockets include a Vega, Sprite, Thor, and many more.
