From MASA VP Neal Higgins:

In attendance at the August MASA meeting were Jason and myself. We waited until 7:15 to see if anyone else would show but no one did.

Here are the items Carol was going to have me talk about:

1. Membership is now around 105 people, including new members from Iowa and Illinois.

2. Club funds are in good shape.

3. Jeff REALLY needs articles for the next newsletter.

4. A number of people are attending NARAM; the September meeting topic will be NARAM 52.

5. We donated 50 rockets to the N52 FiTi. As far as I know, nearly all of our rockets were selected. I've received a lot of positive feedback. A HUGE thank you to everyone who built and donated rockets.
