Join NARHAMS (the National Association of Rocketry Headquarters Astro Modeling Section) at the Goddard Visitor Center for the annual “Apollo” model rocket contest on July 20, 2014. Attempt to land your model rocket within a “moon” drawn on the ground. Trophies and model-rocket prizes will be awarded to the top youth and adult finishers. The contest is free. On-site registration is required on the day of the event. You must bring your own rocket and motors or purchase those items at the Goddard gift shop. For more details, download the Goddard Contest flyer at http://www.narhams.org/ or call 301-286-8981, Tuesday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This year’s event commemorates the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Demonstration flights of scale models of NASA rockets, including the Saturn V-Apollo rocket that took astronauts to the moon, will take place before the contest starts. A station will be made available at which we will offer assistance with contest flight preparations, rocket repairs, etc.
