CTRA-NARCONN's annual membership meeting was held on January 9th, 2016, After much discussion, the following actions were taken for this flying year:
* The roster of officers was ratified. Pete Shultis remains the club President, and Gary Schwartz will once again be the Club Prefect. This was voted on and passed unanimously.
* Launch events are set for the second Saturday of each month, weather permitting. Should there be a rain delay, the launch will be held on Sunday.
* The CTRA Annual "Rocket Festival" (previously known as the invitational) is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of October 8th & 9th . There supposedly will be no corn planted this year so flyers will have an easier time with recovery of their projects. Watch our website for further information.
* Membership rates will stay as they have been for the last few years (see "Become a member"), as does the daily launch fee of $10 (waived for Golden Ticket members.)
We're very enthusiastic about building the club membership. Flyers and hand-outs are being considered, and of course your spreading the word to friends and family is encouraged.
We look forward to seeing you at our Cobleskill launch site. We anticipate many new and interesting projects to show up this year, and are excited to start the flying season!
