  The Pewter Mule
                                                            by Ken White
The presentation will be about the history and flight of a model called the Pewter Mule, built by NASA engineers in the late 70’s to continue the proof of concept for the space shuttle orbiter.  It is a rocket which carried a 1/40th rc scale model of the space shuttle.  It used 24 D-12 Estes rocket motors.  The flight took place in 1979, 40 years ago.  The rocket was found at an estate sale by me and I recognized it immediately because I was there when it flew.  I acquired the model and have been working the last few weeks getting it accepted by the AMA Museum.  I just got the email from the museum committee that it was accepted.  I plan to bring the model to the meeting to discuss it’s history for those interested. 

December 1 Fun Fly Cancelled

The Fun Fly for next Saturday December 1, has been cancelled because the field is just too wet.
However, since this event is held as a charity event, we are asking anyone who wants to donate to leave the donation in the box in the club house or with any officer of the club before December 8th. Be sure to mark the donation as a donation and not for drinks or supplies. If you cannot make it to the club house, just send Grady an email with the amount you would like to give and we will add it to the donations.
We will present the money collected to the sheriff of Brazoria County for distribution to the needy for Christmas, just like last year.

We did get a good start from the people that attended todays meeting.
