June OROC Meeting this Thursday, June 4

OROC members,

The June meeting of Oregon Rocketry will be held this Thursday, June 4, at Giovanni’s Restaurant in Beaverton. The meeting will start at 7:30 PM, but as usual you are invited to arrive earlier for dinner, drinks, and rocket talk. This month’s meeting will be the organizational meeting for NXRS launch coming up at the end of June. Since this is our biggest launch of the year in Brothers, we will spend some time making sure all aspects of the event are covered. If you are in attendance at the meeting you will have the first opportunity to sign up for various duties, including specific times for RSO and LCO, before they are posted to the web after the meeting. As in years past, we will try to have 3 members on duty at all times during the launch. (LCO and two RSOs, one of whom will be a roving RSO/pad manager.)

We will also review the first Brothers launch of the year (Spring Thunder) and the first model rocket launch of the year at Garden Home Park (next launch is Saturday, June 6). There will not be a presentation at this meeting, as I expect launch organization to be the major topic. We will resume educational presentations at the next meeting, however, so come and vote for the topic you want to hear about!
