I'm getting out of rocketry, especially HP, at least for now. I have posted a list on the MARS Face book page. You can check it out there. I hope it shows up OK, I admit to having my problems with Face book!

The National Warplane museum had to change the date for the Chicken Dinner to September 30th. Adult dinners are $10 and Children's $6. Please support the National Warplane Museum.Please don't forget the pot luck dinner next month is surf or turf. Please order a head of time so we can get a head count! We are going to have a campfire as usual after dinner. Dinner will include coleslaw, stake or lobster, corn on the cob, baked potato with all the fixings,desert and a soda or water, for just $15.00 what a deal!
Plan on talking and planning NSL next year, so bring some ideas of logo's, competitions and other key items to make this the most successful NSL to date.

We look forward in seeing everyone's ideas!

Thank you,
MaryBeth Clune

  Surf and Turf Dinner
Posted by: mbclune - 07-10-2017, 07:23 PM - Forum: Club Events - No Replies

Hi everyone, the pot luck dinners have been such a huge hit we've decided to do a surf and turf dinner on September 16, 2017. AMW will bring the fresh lobsters right from Massachusetts hours out of the ocean can't get fresher than that, unless you go to the ocean! Yummy!!!!!Sunday afternoon is the National Warplane Museum's chicken barbecue,so mark your calendars. We will have a price in a week or so for the Saturday night dinner which you'll have to prepay so we can get a head count. There will be a place on the website to pay by PayPal.
Thanks !
MaryBeth Clune
