Join the National Association of Rocketry - Airplanes and RocketsThe National Association of Rocketry (NAR) has been around since 1957. At one time, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) was pretty tightly joined with them in covering model rocketry events and promoting model rocketry. In fact, for while there was space allotted in American Aircraft Modeler, AMA's monthly magazine, for model rocketry. From February 1968 through August 1969 there was a newsletter feature entitled "Model Rocketeer" in addition to a separate article, often written by G. Harry Stine. A complete list of all editions is provided below.

Sport Rocketry, Part 1, October 2006 - Airplanes and RocketsThe NAR and AMA still work together. For example, the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) delegates authority for aeromodeling and spacemodeling to the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), who has in turn delegated Spacemodeling (model rocketry) to the NAR.

Click the NAR logo to the left and go to the membership page of today's National Association of Rocketry. You can read a sample edition of the NAR's magazine, Sport Rocketry, by clicking the thumbnail image to the right (here is part 2).

draft of the NAR constitution and by-laws for final printing. It will be available through NARTS.

Ed Pearson is currently working on a survey of NAR members. It will query members on their modeling activities, NAR participation, educational activities and future plans.

A manual on clubs and operation of area and regional meets and associated activities is now in its initial draft. It will also cover demonstrations and local section activity suggestions. If you have any ideas or suggestions send them to LAC member, Jay Apt, 31 Stoughton Hall, Harvard College, Cambridge, Mass., 02138.

Any former NARAM Rand D winner is requested to send a Xerox copy of their report to James Barrowman, 5614 Hamilton Manor Drive, Apt. #1, Hyattsville, Md. 20782. Mr. Barrowman is collecting these reports and if suitable for publication will include it in a proposed R and D Report Service.

STINE OVERSEAS

G. Harry Stine, NAR Trustee and Director of International Affairs and Standards and Testing took a quick side-trip to visit model rocket friends in Czechoslovakia in mid-February. Harry made the side-trip while attending the Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France.

The Yugoslavs have announced through the FAI that they will hold an International Model Rocket Championship Meet in 1969. The U. S. has been invited to send a representative team. Estimated cost per team member is about $600. More on this later.
