MASA Gives Rocket Talk to Local Church Camp (6/25/1998)

On Thursday, June 25, Mark Thell, Damian Kostron, and Russ Durkee introduced about 100 people to the hobby of model rocketry at (believe it or not...) a church ice-cream social.   St. Luke's Lutheran church had a neat program this year that combined a mini space-camp with their usual youth summer bible camp.  The kids watched the presentation with great interest and had a lot of questions afterward.  They had a great time pulling nose cones off the rockets while asking questions about every rocket.   Mark Thell's space shuttle was especially popular with the kids.  Our rockets are now a little stickier than they were but no worse for the wear.  Plus, we had a very nice time.
