Dave giving stuff awayOn February 22, we had our 8th annual All-Colorado Rocketry Family Dinner. This event was hosted by the gracious folks at Cinzetti's and was sponsored by Tripoli-Colorado. 

This is a very popular event and every year we manage to fill up the tiny meeting room that Cinzetti's provides to overflowing. There are five active rocket clubs in Colorado, and we have guests from Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Boulder, and every where in-between. The main idea behind this event is that during the winter, folks are busy building and not flying. This gathering gives us the opportunity to get together and discuss our winter projects, share some good food, and win a few prizes.

We would like to thank the many folks who generously donated prizes for the raffle: Art Hoag, Jon Skuba, Joe Hinton, Bdale Garbee/AltusMetrum, Photos By Nadine, and many, many others. It is your generosity that helps make this such a popular event.
