Insane Vendor
Jim Flis of Flis Kits has written NARAM 47 with a request to launch this monster foam cup rocket (click for a larger image) on the Sport range on Sunday. As he's not High Power Certified, he's getting a volunteer to load and fire this thing. Who is as crazy as he is?!? Don't miss the fun on the sport weekend, register today!
NARAM.ORG Email System Fixed
Due to a configuration error, the NARAM 47 e-mail system was not delivering mail to the NARAM 47 CD. This error has been corrected, and while he is still slogging through the mountain of back e-mails, our Contest Director will now see all the e-mail you send to him at The NARAM 47 team regrets the error.
Imagination Celebration is GO!
Once again, Rob Edmonds will be hosting the Imagination Celebration just before the Picnic Social at the field. Contact him at to arrange your participation.
Late Registration
If you've waited until the last minute to register for NARAM (and we know you did), it's gonna cost you. As of July 16th, the $20 late fee will go into effect, and the "First NARAM" discount will be dropped. In addition, mail-in registrations will no longer be accepted due to their long processing delay. Instead, pay by PayPal (preferred) or credit card and fax your registration to 513-833-9022. The NARAM 47 team will attempt to process mail-in registrations as quickly as possible, but to insure your place at the NARAM table, fax your registration today!
Sport Rocketry Ad - The ad that appeared in Sport Rocketry was prepared prior to the approval of the NARAM 47 event list by the National Contest Board and the NAR Event Chairman. Those approval processes resulted in changes to the event list, but the ad was not updated prior to publication. The impulse class for the Boost Glide and Helicopter events were swapped, the E motor class for the Dual Egg Loft event was established for A and B Division competitors, and A Rocket Glider was replaced by Research and Development. The events for NARAM 47 are correctly listed on the Events page, along with several Rule interpretations required by the Sporting Code. The NARAM 47 Team regrets the error.
News A list of the bookings at the host hotel for NARAM 47 as of May 13, 2005 is shown at the link below. If you made a reservation at the host hotel prior to this date and your name does not appear on the list, your reservation has not been deducted from the NARAM 47 room block. Either contact the hotel and get the "Queen City Rocket Club" booking code associated with your reservation, or inform us at and we'll take care of it for you.
Note that there are only forty-two (42) rooms booked, but some folks have reported problems securing reservations either in our block of one hundred (100) or during the dates of the event. If this happens to you, please contact the hotel DIRECTLY @ 513-671-6600 to make your reservation. MENTION THE "QUEEN CITY ROCKET CLUB" BOOKING CODE.

The NARAM 47 team negotiated long and hard to get this deadline, as the hotel expects to sell out about a month prior the event.
