For the fourth year, volunteer members of the Blue Mountain Rocketeers participated in the Weller Public Library Summer Reading Program. This year's event was held on Thursday, July 5, 2007, and for the first time, we were able to conduct a live model rocketry launch demonstration in front of a small but enthusiastic crowd of 30 boys and girls.
The members of BMR who participated in this year's event included Dean Smith, Liz Quigg, club President Alex Sams, John Quigg, Eric Sams, Cyndi Sams, club Secretary/Treasurer Taylor Sams and Section Advisor Tim Quigg.
BMR's Section Advisor Tim Quigg provided a short presentation to the group, followed by a model rocketry launch demonstration. Sources of reading for further information including Sport Rocketry Magazine and the Handbook of Model Rockeltry were also recommended, followed by a question and answer session.
BMR would like to take this opportunity to thank Librarian Jan Conkite for once again asking BMR to be a part of this fun and exciting summer program. We hope that the kids enjoyed our presentation as we did bringing it to them!
