Jim Flis of Flis Kits has written NARAM 47 with
a request to launch this monster foam cup rocket (click for a larger image) on the
Sport range on Sunday. As he's not High Power Certified, he's getting a volunteer to load
and fire this thing. Who is as crazy as he is?!? Don't miss the fun on the sport weekend,
||NARAM.ORG Email System Fixed|
Due to a configuration error, the NARAM 47 e-mail system was not delivering mail to the
NARAM 47 CD. This error has been corrected, and while he is still slogging through the
mountain of back e-mails, our Contest Director will now see all the e-mail you send to him
at email@example.com. The NARAM 47 team regrets

If you've waited until the last minute to register for NARAM (and we know you did), it's
gonna cost you. As of July 16th, the $20 late fee will go into effect, and the "First NARAM"
discount will be dropped. In addition, mail-in registrations will no longer be accepted due
to their long processing delay. Instead, pay by PayPal (preferred) or credit card and fax your
registration to 513-833-9022. The NARAM 47 team will attempt to process mail-in registrations
as quickly as possible, but to insure your place at the NARAM table, fax your registration
Sport Rocketry Ad - The ad that appeared in
Sport Rocketry was prepared prior to the
approval of the NARAM 47 event list by the National
Contest Board and the NAR Event Chairman. Those
approval processes resulted in changes to the event
list, but the ad was not updated prior to publication.
The impulse class for the Boost Glide and Helicopter
events were swapped, the E motor class for the Dual
Egg Loft event was established for A and B Division
competitors, and A Rocket Glider was replaced by
Research and Development. The events for NARAM 47 are
correctly listed on the Events page, along with
several Rule interpretations required by the
Sporting Code. The NARAM 47 Team regrets the
A list of the bookings at the host hotel for NARAM 47
as of May 13, 2005 is shown at the link below. If you made a reservation at the host hotel prior to
this date and your name does not appear on the list, your reservation
has not been deducted from the NARAM 47 room block. Either contact the
hotel and get the "Queen City Rocket Club" booking code associated
with your reservation, or inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org and
we'll take care of it for you.
Note that there are only forty-two (42) rooms booked, but some folks
have reported problems securing reservations either in our block of
one hundred (100) or during the dates of the event. If this happens to
you, please contact the hotel DIRECTLY @ 513-671-6600 to make your
reservation. MENTION THE "QUEEN CITY ROCKET CLUB" BOOKING CODE. This
will insure that you receive the event rate and that your reservation
is debited from the NARAM 47 room block, allowing us to accurately
gauge our accommodation needs.
Unreserved rooms in the NARAM 47 block will be released two weeks
prior to the event. (July 14) After this date, the event rate will no
longer be available and you may not be able to obtain lodging. The
NARAM 47 team negotiated long and hard to get this deadline, as the
hotel expects to sell out about a month prior the event. To obtain the
event rate and assure your lodging preferences, BOOK NOW.
Cancellations will be accepted up to one day prior to your arrival
without penalty. Click here for the list.
