The January 2006 MASA meeting was held on the 12th at
the Science Museum.
14 people attended the meeting.
MASA is planning to have a model rocket exhibit at
MarsCon, a local
Science Fiction convention during the weekend of March 3-5.
If you are interested in helping with the exhibit, please let a
club officer know.
NARCON is the weekend of March 10-12. Many MASA
members are planning to attend.
TARC was discussed - how mentors and teams are doing.
2006 MASA name badges were discussed. Design
submissions will remain open until January 20. Then, votes
will be collected and a design chosen.
The January 28 launch will be at the White Bear Lake field.
Mike is going to try to submit a Notification for this launch
just in case TARC teams are there with >1lb rockets. This
date also marks the 20th anniversary of the loss of Challenger
and her crew.
There will be no rocket exhibit at the Lego League
tournament this year.
