Going to NARAM 2000? (12/2/1999)
Some MASA members are organizing an expedition to NARAM 2000 next
July. This is the annual competition launch for the NAR, and will be
held this year on Vernon Estes' ranch near Penrose, Colorado. In
addition to the competition, there is a continuous sport launch
beginning the weekend before the competition and lasting all week.
Ted Cochran, Alan Estenson, Bob Brashear, and some of their
family members will be renting an RV and leaving late Thursday July
27 or Friday July 28, and returning Saturday August 5th or Sunday
August 6th. There still may be some room for another person or two
if you need a lift out there, are willing to share gas and driving,
and plan to stay in a motel. Let Ted Cochran know. There should be
plenty of space for rockets!
If anyone is interested, new RVs ranging from 22' to 29' can be
rented from CanAm RV in Shakopee . If enough people split the cost,
it can be pretty inexpensive compared to a hotel.
If you decide to go, let's plan to meet up at the launch
site--anyone interested in a team entry?
