Swing for the Moon Contest

2019 MASA Swing for the Moon Contest

The Alan Shepard golf ball launch

As we all know, back in February of 1971, Alan Shepard hit 2 golf balls while on the moon for Apollo 14. So we are lofting 2 golf balls into the air to reach an altitude of 671 feet (In honor of when Alan Shepard drove the balls on the lunar surface – 2/6/71.). You will have up to, and no more than, three declared flights at the August launch to post a qualifying score.

NAR and MASA "Land the Eagle" Contest Information

This will be a monthly NAR event to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, July 20, 2019. 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 contestant whose rocket lands closest to the Tranquility Base target is the winner for the month. The closest landing for the entire year will win an additional grand prize at the annual picnic.
