Hi Greg. it was mentioned that you and a group as well as Dutch were possibly traveling to WNY with rockets and a presentation. I hope to be able to join you. I know that mike is not in a position for the expense of the travel.

My opinion is that no one should be using there own money especially when contributing there time. I think you should come up with a far amount that covers those involved expenses and the club cover it. The amount of time some of you contribute is beyond and the club is financially sound enough to handle things that shouldn't be your personal expense. Just my thoughts but not my money so lets here how you guys want to do things like this. LW

Thank you Larry.
I agree. I would like to see a 25 spot for Gas and tolls in the form of a gas receipt.

That's a reasonable rembursement considering the distance involved.  Does the club have any PR handouts to distribute?  If not we should make up a downloadable 8.5" x 11" trifold handout that our reps can print it and bring out with them.

A two-sided color printout cost about $0.10 to $0.15 per page when printed out at home.  If a club rep goes on a BOD approved PR mission it would be ok IMO if we allocated $5 for them to printout and bring a couple dozen trifolds.

I would also like to propose the club get 1000 generic business cards for members to handout.  The cards would list our website address and contact info.  This would cost $20 or less from a number of on-line printing companies.

This makes a neat display

3/16" launch rod - 4 ~ 6' length
launch pad - add weights
straws, hot glue, and a bag of polyfill from Walmart or equivalent
Glue polyfill to straws.  Slide straws onto rod.  Spread balance of polyfill around launch pad.
Stick a light rocket on top

I'm for both those ideas.  Club PR should be covered, but we should keep it on a case by case basis, and always have a pre approved amount.

Club cards would also be pretty cool to have to pass out for everyone.   We keep seeing new faces at launches and thats a good thing.

Check your e-mail for the Tripolitan.  It mentions that TRA has a downloadable trifold on the TRA website.   It might be just what the doctor ordered.
