Default Naram-60 Orr

The NARAM-60 Old Rocketeer's reunion was great!

Trip Barber did an outstanding job of organizing this event.

Over 160 rocketeers participated in the event.

One side of the room was set up with displays of old rocketry products.

I created a tribute to the Estes Citation Patriot model and it's history.

There was lot's of discussions with people milling around.

The event was scheduled for five hours but nobody left early.

Bill Stine, Vern Estes and Lee Piester each gave brief speeches concerning the history of the hobby.

Attached are some pictures of my display and people at the event.

Yes, it was excellent. So many people, yet didn't talk to as many as I'd wanted to.

Also amusing and so typical that a certain person didn't pay to attend and tried to "crash" the event. He was deservedly kicked out (or never let in).

This same person came up to me at the field, reached out his hand, so I reached out mine and we shook hands. After he said his name I couldn't undo what just happened. Later he asked to interview me but since I then knew who he was, I said NO.
