December Meeting - Thursday, December 3, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
This will be a virtual meeting using Google Meet. Please send an e-mail to art dot gibbens at gmail dot com if you would like an invitation. Invitations will be sent out the night before, December 2nd.
We will be going over just what an LCO does at a launch so that more folks can start pushing the buttons. We'll also be showing off our winter builds to date. We'll also be handing out the Land the LM Contest prizes and looking for nominations for the VP position for the coming year.

The Holiday Party is postponed until further noticed due to Governor Tim Walz's Stay Safe MN orders, effective November 13, 2020.
This will be a monthly NAR event beginning at this years first launch to continue commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landings. The contest objective is to launch a model rocket and have it land closest to an area on the launch field representing the moon. The closest landing for the entire year will win the grand prize, a Saturn 1B Model Rocket, to be given away at the annual holiday party. There will also be prizes given at the annual party for second and third place.
