As most of you now know we are co-hosting NARAM this year. Some of you may also know that much of our equipment has turned up missing and will need to be replaced before NARAM. Also, as cables seem to be a high theft item we are taking this opportunity to switch to a wireless controller. So, we're looking at a bunch of new pads and a new launch system. What we need now is money to pay for it without draining the club treasury. If you can contribute, it will be greatly appreciated. This stuff isn't cheap but it should last a long time if we do it right.

Has the club applied for a NAR Ssection Grant? My last club had just applied a few weeks ago and quickly got a check for $250. They had received grants the past several years which we used for equipment purchases.

Yes, I applied about a week ago. The $250 will help but we need to build an entirely new launch system and most of the pads. It's not going to be cheap. We need the equipment for NARAM and for future events at the AMA so it's really not an option.

Mario,
if you can get my email from the member list, send me an email
and we can trade phone numbers so we can communicate the analog way.

Mario:
I will donate money now, and again in another month or so. Where should I send it? You can contact me on Facebook Messenger, or text me.

Also-I'd be glad to talk to AMA and find out what rockets/kind of rockets they would like to have for a display. Do you have any specific names to contact there, to start the ball rolling?
