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 February 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.

The U. S. has been invited to compete in a World Championship Meet in Yugoslavia
in 1969. Details will be announced at a later date.
Members attending the meetings were, President Beetch, and trustees Atwood, Barrowman,
Butterworth, Belkewitch, Kirchner, Kukowski, Worth, Stine, Thompson and Rich.
Larry Loos, USAF, Ent Air Force Base, will assume editorship of The Model Rocketeer
beginning with the next issue. Larry served as Assistant Public Affairs Chief at
NARAM-9. He is well qualified to handle the chore since he is a Public Information
Specialist at the Colorado Air Force installation. Larry was responsible for the
establishment of a model rocket program among USAF personnel and their dependents
He replaces "Casey" Kukowski, NAR Public Affairs Trustee. (I'm going to start
building models for a change and be nice to my wife). JK.
