March 2014 MASA meeting

The March 2014 MASA meeting was held on the 6th at the Southdale Library. 13 people were in attendance.

Special Recognition:

The 2013 MASSY Award for Design of the Year was presented to Rick Vatsaas for his great work on the 3D printed MASA logo rocket.

Kitbash Contest:

Alan Estenson kicked off the 2014 MASA kitbash contest.  Quite a few people purchased the set of kits to participate.  For the contest info and rules, see


  • Location of the March launch is TBD.
  • The annual TARC launch at Apple Valley High School is planned for March 22.
  • MASA could use more rockets for the Fly-It, Take-It box. FITI rockets are kept on hand at MASA launches. Visiting kids may pick out a rocket, are provided with an engine, get to fly it and take it home. If you would like to build and donate any FITI rockets, please keep them fairly simple and make sure that they can fly on an "A" motor. (we could also use motor donations)  FITI rocket donations are also needed for NARAM this year.

Show -n- Tell:

  • Rick Vatsaas brought his 2013 high power project.  It is based loosely on a LOC Minie Magg.  Has a tailcone and altimeter bay.  It flew on a J350 and a J240.

Meeting Topic: 

Ted Cochran went through a safety briefing and also a State of the NAR presentation.
