o	Try having a couple dedicated racks and a separate line for Outreach
*	This means having someone volunteer to perform safety checks

LUNAR Lost a member this year.  Richard Hagen passed away in early
September.  Richard was very active in LUNAR and the AeroPac rocket club.
Richard also enjoyed flying flew student CanSats in a program call ARLISS.
The Club would like to sponsor a ARLISS flight in Richard's name each year
(depending on Club finances). This still needs an official vote...

Jim Bassham is pulling together the NAR contest for LUNAR.  This year's
events are:
Jim is willing to do a 3-4 event contest in January.  If someone is willing
to host another one we can have two like last year.
The G altitude event last year was a success as well as the C super-roc.  Is
there any interest in a craftsmanship event (Sport Scale, Classic model,
Concept scale)?  Is there any interest in trying F-altitude (or E) if anyone
wants to - We could also try D, E, F or G super roc if anyone is willing to
build for that?
Are there any events that any of you definitely want to fly? Some popular
past events are: Spot Landing, Predicted Duration, Set Altitude, Sport
Scale, D super-roc, 1/2A altitude, A parachute duration, B streamer
duration, 1/4 A Flex wing, 
Any favorites, or new events you guys want to try? If you have any ideas,
please contact Jim Bassham, LUNAR Contest Director.

LUNAR President
