MASA goes for the Bronze!

NARTREK Bronze, that is.

Starting in 2002, MASA is encouraging all its members to participate in the NARTREK program.  If you plan to participate, send us email and we'll add your name to this page.  Then, we can see how we're all progressing as the year goes by...  We'll be having special themes and contests at launches this summer to encourage you to make the Bronze flights.

To learn about NARTREK and download the Bronze level information, just go to http://www.nar.org/nartrek/

You can download a PDF version of the MASA NARTREK Bronze Info sheet that was distributed at the May 2002 meeting.

At the end of 2002, the names of all MASA members who achieve the NARTREK Bronze level (or higher!) will be entered into a special prize drawing!

A special prize will be awarded to the first MASA member who officially receives his/her Bronze level certificate of achievement!  On July 27, Mike Erpelding was declared the winner of this prize!  He selected a Neubauer Saturn V 1/396 scale rocket kit.

Note to MASA members who are not NAR members - you can still participate!  You should still print-out the Bronze packet, follow the rules, and fill in the sheets for your flights.  When you've completed all four flights successfully, give your packet to me, and I'll award you a special "MASA Bronze" certificate.  If you want the official standing (including patch & official certificate), you'll need to join NAR and submit your packet to NARTREK.
