A message from the President:

As HARA has a lot things cooking this year, especially with NSL coming up in May, I agreed to serve another single-year term as president.   I greatly appreciate the others stepping up to (or continuing in) leadership positions.  This is a great group of core members of HARA that have a real zeal for rocketry and for our club.  I request that all HARA members please give these officers your support and to be willing help out in local outreach, equipment maintenance, and range support.

I think that you all know me pretty well. I’m a laid back, easy leader.  I believe firmly that hobbies are to be fun, and it is my goal to keep this hobby fun for everyone.  With the tragic model rocket accident that occurred late last year, there will probably be a bit more rigor in the RSO inspections, even for very small rockets.  Please bear with the RSO and know that he/she is helping to maintain the high standards of safety that model rocketry has shown since the 1950s.

NSL will be here before we know it and we’re going to need a lot of help from our members to pull this off. Daniel Cavender is our NSL Director.  He’ll soon be asking for help in filling jobs for NSL. Please be willing to help.  Don’t be afraid to take on a job, even you don’t have much experience in that role. You learn by doing and we’ll gladly give you all of the training/support that you need.

If there is anything that I can do to help your growth, or fun, in model rocketry, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Best regards,
