>The Rocketeer Reunion 2018 is intended to bring together all generations of NAR members to share fellowship and memories.

Here's a statement adapted from a quote by American born museum curator Nancy Hatch Dupree who lived most of her life in Afghanistan. Her original quote referred to Afghanistan, but the sentiment also applies to organizations like the NAR and hobbies like model rocketry.

"Model rocketry and the NAR stays alive if its culture stays alive.

Maybe we should challenge every NAR Section to sponsor a deserving young person to attend the Rocketeer Reunion and Rocketry Festival so they can meet some of our hobby pioneers, spend some time with them, and take in some rocketry history?

Young people can carry model rocketry's torch toward the 22nd century. We have a proud heritage and culture. Let's foster its growth with our youth.
