2018 National Sport Launch (NSL)
MARS is very proud to repost this announcement from the NAR... For those of you who have flown in Geneseo, NY, you know how great it is to have this event at this field. For those of you who haven't flown here...YOU GOTTA CHECK IT OUT! We are so proud to host the NSL, and are looking forward to meeting fliers all across the country.

The National Association of Rocketry (NAR) Board of Trustees is excited to announce that the 2018 National Sport Launch (NSL) will be held in Geneseo, NY. The dates you want to reserve are Saturday through Monday, May 26 - 28, 2018, Memorial Day weekend.
The Board thanks the Monroe Astronautical Rocket Society (MARS), Section 136, for hosting! MARS was founded in 1964, and is the oldest continuously active NAR section. They are also celebrating 25 years at their legendary Geneseo, NY field, home of the “National Warplane Museum!”
The Geneseo site features:
• A standing 12,000 waiver
• Easy recovery on a square mile of mowed grass with many more miles of open land. 
• This site has hosted many other successful events. NARAM’s 37 and 43 – and NSL’s in ‘97, ‘00, ‘03, and ’12. There have been 21 NYPOWER events and even an LDRS in ’03!
• Camping with a truck/camper or trailer, or RV is allowed on the field but there are no hookups available- you must be self-contained.
Thank you to Event Director MaryBeth Clune and her team, they are hard at work to make this 25th Anniversary event a most memorable one. The Board appreciates your continued commitment to the NAR! For more information on MARS Club, please visit the section's website at
Details regarding the event, will be shared as they are available.

As many of you already know Vern and Gleda Estes will be our special guests for NSL 2018.

Vern just reached out to me with a special request. "I was thinking how nice it would be if someone built a Super Big Bertha and everyone there signed it for us to take back to Colorado (or ship back). We would proudly display it in our personal museum."

I don't think I need to point out that his personal museum will eventually wind up alongside G. Harry Stine's, so that donated upscaled BB will be on display for future generations to enjoy.

BTW banquet tickets are selling very fast. We are already at 2/3 capacity of the hall, so if you are thinking of possibly attending, but aren't quite sure yet, I would advise you to not wait much longer!

I really would hate to have anyone attending miss out on Vern and Gleda's special 60th year presentation they have planned for the banquet.

I look forward to seeing many of you at NSL next month!
