Well, we did pretty well at the TARC finals - 14th in the nation, when you look at both flights (for some reason, the official TARC results count the second flight for the folks who took the top 10 spots, but discount the second flight for the #11-20 spots, and of course the rest only flew one flight - but that's my story and I'm sticking with it! :roll: ). As a result of being in the Top 20, we received an invitation to participate in the NASA-sponsored Student Launch Initiative next year.

I'll be doing the orientation this summer, and our school's NAR mentor did it last year (another school he mentors got the invite, but then couldn't participate in the program). I'm not too worried about the rocket flying part.

But, I'm looking for other folks who've done SLI in the past and would like to help us out with an idea of what to expect and what your "if we had it to do again"s would be.... so, if you're willing to chat - would you contact me at my school email: [email protected] ? Thanks!
