Until Brian gets a web presence set up, I will continue to actively maintain the NAR Northeast Meets page.
I have created this web resource in the hope that it will be valuable to NAR members (in the Northeast and elsewhere). While its slanted towards the administration of contests, there are many resources here which may be of interest to the typical NAR member.
I hope these pages will evolve to further serve the contest rocketry community. To that end, I ask anyone who stops by here to let me know what's good, what's bad (yes, even what's ugly ;). Your feedback will help to shape the contents here (and the lack of it may indicate that this isn't really useful to many people). I'm going to be working with Chris Tavares shortly to create a similar page for the National Contest Board on the NAR web site and your comments will impact on that as well. So drop me a short e-mail note to narnercb at verizon dot net, OK?
Jeff Vincent, former NAR Northeast Regional Contest Board Chairman
In recent years, the Midwest region has had many more meets than the Northeast. To redress this imbalance and to allow the respective Regional Chairs to better serve their constituents, the state of Ohio has been moved from the Midwest to Northeast region within the Contest Board. This goes into effect with start of the 2000-2001 NAR contest season (ie: it is effective immediately). Ohio contest directors should file their sanctions with NE Chairman Jeff Vincent.
11.9 Self-Penalizing Flights Models whose flights are safe, but do not recover in the manner they were designed to (refer to rule 15.3), are not necessarily disqualified. If the recovery problem was of a safe nature which did not tend to give the model a performance advantage contrary to the event and the model still performs the basic requirement of the event, the flight is qualified. i.e. Parachute duration model whose chute does not deploy, a glider with a streamer hung onto it (while still gliding stably), or a helicopter model which flips multiple times (while primarily autorotating about the vertical axis) are penalizing their flight performances.

Newsgroups: rec.models.rockets Subject: New Pink Book Available From: !email@example.com! (Mark B. Bundick) Date: Thu, 19 Nov 1998 11:08:34 GMT A new printed copy of the Pink Book is now available at NAR HQ. For a variety of cost and production reasons, we have returned to the "old" 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 format last printed in the early 90's. These books should easily fit into your range box, and will be quite compact. Members who want or need a new copy can contact NAR HQ and request one simply by emailing your name, NAR number and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. ============================================================================ Mark B.
