QRS Inc. Calendar 2014

Postby october sky » Mon May 26, 2014 3:17 pm

On Tuesday the 27th and on Friday the 30th of May I will be doing a display and talk about rockets in Hillsong Church Child Care Centre, Mt.Gravatt. :)

I did one last year and they really liked it so I got a call back. It is a challenge to talk to under 5's about rockets and what it is all about so it is really a matter of keeping it really simple....and that's fine with me as I'm simple anyway... :lol:

My own daughter Montana attends this Child Care so she is a bit proud that dad is doing this. In few years time she doesn't want to know me around friends.... :roll:

I have just returned from Boonah State Primary School which is good one hours drive west from Brisbane.

This is actually my third visit to that school ( they must like me... :lol: )and what is truly great about this small country school is their teacher who is really getting kids into science and what better science is there..... :wink:

There was a bunch of very enthusiastic students there lapping up the rocketry stuff. We were in a big soccer oval and it was brilliant weather to do a demo launch followed by 4 of their own A powered rockets. All went perfect. :P

Now, the great news is that this small school will send 4 teams to this years AYRC...yeah...4 from a small school, now that is fantastic. They were there last year also and they got an encouragement award....so that must have really worked !

AYRC is only week and half away so that will be one awesome day again...always is ! :D

Logan North Library is holding it's annual Sci-Fi and Fantasy Month during August and we are invited again ( I believe the 4th time) to put up a display of rockets on their library. 8)

This is on the day they call "Finale" when all will gather there and it will run from 10am till 1pm on the 30th of August, 2014.

All members who are able to assist on the day would be more than welcome...more the merrier !

Bring some of your rockets ( with stands please) to show public what we do ! :wink:

Please let me know via here, mobile or email if you can make it ! Thanks. :D

They say ( and who are they :roll: ) better late than never so I finally get to do a report on this special day at the Logan North Library.

Big thank you goes to Jeff, George, Petar and Warren for coming to help on the day.

We got to talk to number of people about our favourite hobby and we sure had some weird and wonderful company as can be expected when it is a Sci-Fi and Fantasy month.

We had good time there and again more people got to hear about what rocketry is all about.

Note to Jeff, couple of those photos would be great mate...thank you. :D
