John Comiskey and the Atria Valley Manors Rocketry Club are ready for Desert Heat on March 28 and 29. Watch out AZ Rocketry and Just Boys!
The SARA launch scheduled for December 13 is also the election of officers. Typically, this is more of a matter of convincing those already serving to continue doing so. Here is the list of current officers:
|Vice President||Miles Anderson|
|Member at Large||Ken Weaver|
|Tripoli Prefect||Art Just|
Note that SARA's bylaws state that the Tripoli Prefect must be elected, while the NAR Senior Section Advisor is appointed. Steve Lubliner has agreed to fulfill the NAR role again in 2015, and I expect his appointment to be the first order of business for the new Board.
Finally, now is a great time to renew your membership for 2015. It's still only $25 for a year-long family membership, and we really rely on the membership dues to provide funds for our launch equipment. You can fill out a form at a launch, or use the link on our web site (which also lets you pay with a credit card, something we can't currently do out at the field). Thank you for supporting SARA!
Now is an excellent time to renew your SARA membership for 2015.
The cost is still only $25.00 per family. These membership dues are vital to the upkeep and improvement of our equipment, so please purchase a membership if you are able.
You will save the $5 range fee at every club launch, as well as receiving a $5 discount on Desert Heat range fees. Your membership pays for itself if you attend less than half of our launches in 2015!
