Default Tminus5 and Apogee Newsletters

I started this project a few weeks ago and it's finally finished. With help from John Potts, Roger Wilfong, and Mark Chrumka, the entire newsletter library of Tminus5 from HUVARS (Huron Valley Rocket Society) and Apogee from MIVARS (Miami Valley Rocket Society) is online in PDF format. Each index also includes an "About" page with a short description of each club and their newsletters.

The Tminus5 archive is located at http://cv41.org/newsletters/T-Minus5/
The Apogee archive is located at http://cv41.org/newsletters/Apogee/

I can't access them from work, but checking out old magazines and newsletters is one of my guilty pleasures of late. I've downloaded a bunch of old reader designs from Model Rocketry Magazine to alleviate my boredom with recent kit offerings.

Back in the day, T Minus 5 was one of the best rocket club newsletters in the country. I downloaded the entire set!

Thanks everyone. The next addition I would like to make is an article index. I already have one just for scale articles and that list includes scale articles in Model Rocketry magazine as well as all of the NAR magazines. It still needs some cleaning up and then I'll make that available.

Very nice that you are able to put the early HUVARS newsletters on the site.
