The National Association of Rocketry (NAR) has been around since 1957. At one time, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) was pretty tightly joined with them in covering model rocketry events and promoting model rocketry. In fact, for while there was space allotted in American Aircraft Modeler, AMA's monthly magazine, for model rocketry. From January 1968 through August 1969 there was a newsletter feature entitled "Model Rocketeer" in addition to a separate article, often written by G. Harry Stine. A complete list of all editions is provided below.
The NAR and AMA still work together. For example, the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) delegates authority for aeromodeling and spacemodeling to the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), who has in turn delegated Spacemodeling (model rocketry) to the NAR.

USE NAR TECHNICAL SERVICES
NAR members are encouraged to use NAR Technical Services. The new Pink Book contains a list of what's available. New members also receive a list of what is on sale from NARTS. A Publication Committee has been formed to update and provide new publications for purchase by NAR members.
PITTSBURGH SECTION SCHEDULES CONVENTION
The Steel City Section has another great convention scheduled for March 1968. SCS President Arnold Pitler says he will send information sheets to modelers on request. Write to: Arnold Pitler, 1051 Negley Ave., Pittsburgh, Penna.
NOTICE TO NON AFFILIATED CLUBS
If you have a model rocket club, but are not chartered under the NAR, why not join in the fun? A recent regional meet at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. was a good example. Despite some poor weather (Hurricane Doria was acting up) it was very successful. A motel near the Army station provided low cost accommodations, a banquet hall and excellent food. It was well worth the effort and new friendships were made among members of the sections in attendance.
