Kudos to Sue Gaines
for arranging for a NSS Florida table at today’s National Space Club luncheon
featuring Al Worden of Apollo 15. It was
great seeing everyone and the speaker was fun.
The hope is we continue to sponsor a table every month. Great idea to just tag onto someone else’s
$228 in account. Reports
available on-line now.
Objective of this
meeting was to set realistic goals:
per quarter have a “wow” speaker at FSA meeting room.
to meet at KDI once per month.
Mostly to catch up with friends, have a drink and some dinner.
other organizations’ functions as a NSS group.
in Florida Space 2005 planned for November 15-18. Even if it’s to collect tickets,
etc. Remember: this is the event that Space Congress
and the AF Space Symposium morphed into.
term: make the Cape Canaveral Range
more customer-friendly or else all the expected future “X-Prize” type
craft will go elsewhere.
ACTIVE MEMBER SHOULD WORK TO BRING ONE NEW PERSON TO EVERY MEETING!
Fred announced that he is
reviving the L5 News. It’s available
on-line at L5news.org/new. Congrats
Fred! Everyone go check it out. Very brainy stuff. He’s looking for authors.
Meeting adjourned at 6:10
