The first meeting had 17 attendees.  Most were either URRG BOD or from RIT, though there were a couple of regular club members as well. 

Events / General Membership meetings

As a reminder, there are general membership winter meetings scheduled for 2/22 and 3/22/18.  Possibly for 4/26 as well, if attendance is good.  Meetings are at RIT in the Galisano Building.  From Mike Dutch:

This will be your chance see how the club is doing and see what is in the future of the URRG. The meeting will finish up with a show and tell from the members. So bring your latest rocketry projects and we will see you then.

Here are directions with maps include;

The meeting will be held in the Golisano Building (#70 on RIT campus maps) so park in the J lot. Enter the building from the J lot side (you must walk around another building to get to the entrance) through the large set of doors. Turn hard right in the lobby and go through the double doors on the right (by a small snack bar). The room is immediately on your right. Room #70-1103

Regarding hazmat fees-  Remember almost all aerotech 29mm L1 reloads ship without hazmat fees,  and most Loki 38mm L1 motors are also hazmat free.

Hey Paul.. Thanks so much for the info, and sorry for the slow reply.  I was talking to wildman on the phone and he said the same thing.

Thanks Mike and Rich. I found a cert special at Offwego Rocketry. Got motor hardware free with a reload kit.
I'll be buying future motors from vendors at events to save on hazmat fees.

Vendors also sometimes have certification specials.  When I did my L1, Ken included the casing when I bought the reload, though I also needed to buy the rear closure in order to use it.

Hi Nick that was a very nice flight you had there too. Just so you know we should have a vendor at our April launch next year ,usually Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies;
No matter where you get the motor any rocket vendor will sell the motor you need to get your L1, (an 'H' or an "I'). It's just if you buy from a vendor who will be at the launch he can bring it with him and save you Hazmat fees you would incur with shipping through the mail.

I was at the black Friday launch and really enjoyed it (I was the guy flying the LOC Hi-Tec for the first time).  Thanks to everyone who helped with that.  I got my URRG and Tripoli memberships.

I want to get my L1 cert and was wondering about how to get an L1 motor for the next launch.  Is there paperwork given so I can buy one?  Are there loaner motors as advertised on the website?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I hope all of you are looking forward to attending our Black Friday Launch for the next two days. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate for us, both days will be in the low 50's with Friday being the sunniest day.
I hope to see many of you there.
