May Meeting Minutes (5/30/2009)

The May 2009 MASA meeting was held on the 28th at Alan Estenson's house.  A total of 9 people attended.

This meeting consisted of a rocket build (& bull) session in Alan's garage starting around 6:30pm with refreshments - cookies & lemonade.  Thanks to Buzz for buying pizza, too!

In preparation for the June contest, four Edmonds Deltie-B's were constructed.  Thinking ahead to Saturday's odd-roc themed launch, several people built "Sputniks", too.

Buzz brought a variety of contest rockets, and showed us competition streamers and how they're folded.

About 8:30, rocket building was abandoned as everyone headed indoors to enjoy Alan's personal collection of vintage video arcade and pinball games for an hour.

[Thanks for coming; it was fun! - Alan]
