MASA holiday party!

We're pleased to announce the 2010 MASA Holiday Party!

All MASA members, their families and guests are invited to attend.  RSVP's are welcome, but not necessary.


Saturday, December 4
6:30 - 9:00 PM


Food and snacks are pot-luck.  Please bring something tasty to share with the group.
MASA provides beverages (and plates, utensils, etc).

No alcoholic beverages, please!

This is an evening of fun, socializing, the wacky gift exchange game, the 2010 MASSY Awards, free door prizes, and much more!
(Read about last year's party)

There will be tables set up for display of rockets, projects, memorabilia, or whatever!  Feel free to bring something along.

We'll also have a few fun rocket "beauty" contests, including:

  • Scale (any scale model)
  • Kitbash (anything you've kitbashed)
  • Kid-constructed (anything that's been built by one of our younger members, open to those who are currently 17 and younger)

(sorry, there are no real prizes for the beauty contests, just bragging rights)

We've heard that people will be bringing the following food items:
(if you know what you'll be bringing, please let us know and we'll list it here)

  • sloppy joe filling and buns
  • fresh vegetable tray with dip
  • BBQ meatballs
  • salad
  • cookies
  • dessert of some kind
  • ingredients to make ice cream with LN
  • (much undecided)

And, while not a food item, Todd C. will be bringing the liquid nitrogen again this year!


The "Community Room" at the
Chaska Community Center
1661 Park Ridge Dr
Chaska, MN 55318

The Community Room is on the right half of the building (as you face it from the parking lot).  It's easiest to use the doors labeled "Theater Entrance".  Overflow parking is across the street at the middle school.


The Chaska Community Center is located at 1661 Park Ridge Drive in the City of Chaska, MN, near the corner of Highway 41 and Engler Blvd.  Click here for a map

From the North, South or East:
From the intersection of Interstate 494 and Hwy 212 in Eden Prairie, take Hwy 212 (old 312) south/west to Chaska (continue on Hwy 212 towards Hwy 41). Turn left (South) onto Hwy 41 and follow Hwy 41 to Engler Blvd. Turn left onto Engler Blvd and follow to Park Ridge Drive.  Turn left onto Park Ridge and follow one block and the Chaska Community Center will be on your right.

From the West:
Take Hwy 5 (or New Hwy 212) east to Hwy 41. Turn south (right) on Hwy 41. At Engler Boulevard, turn east (left) to Park Ridge Drive. Turn left onto Park Ridge Drive and follow one block. The Chaska Community Center will be on your right.

We'll have seating for 40 plus extra tables for food, rocket and project displays (or whatever).

Big thanks to Lyle Merdan for arranging this party location!
