Re: 2017

Welcome back, Kale! I doubt I'll be able to meet you the week before Summerfest, as I'll be getting ready for the big event during that time. Too bad ya can't put your trip off a week, you sure are missing a great event! The A-12 isn't quite on the stick just yet. They're just now getting it strippe...

Re: Alabama Space And Rocket Center Patch

Yeah, we all know about the red patches and why they exist. Blachwk has encountered an extremely rare variant and was inquiring about that. My guess is they just needed a white one to put on white "spacesuits" or something at the museum where the red patches didn't quite work as well.

Re: STA news

If I recall correctly, the amphitheatre is a part of Phase II of the project, and will have its own fundraiser. I expect we'll find out more about that after the ribbon cutting on July 13.

She looks good! She'll be getting a bath soon, and stairs so you can get up and see inside the cockpit.

Ribbon cutting and dedication will kick off Summerfest in July.

Here it is being reassembled and cleaned before it goes up on the display mounts. I'll get some better shots when I go visit next week. It should be up on the mounts by then.

Re: 2017

At the Alumni Festival AKA Space Camp Summerfest 2015, we got to fly simulated missions with Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger. She is a great friend of Space Camp and an awesome, down-to-earth person. She would be a perfect female astro for AASA since she is also a Space Camp Hall Of Famer. I think she s...

Re: Hidden Figures

I'll admit I had my doubts about this movie, as I do with any "realistic" space movie that comes out. But so far, all of my space buddies who have seen it have raved about it. So I will be checking it out this week.

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

I haven't been, but I've heard it is awesome. I plan on going in June. One thing I would not miss is their sister facility, the Titan Missile Museum. It's about 30 minutes away.

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

No worries about being left out. Even if everybody goes to the "Library" after hours, I'm sure they'll let you tag along (you just might have to settle for a non-alcoholic beverage). :| Which reminds me of another difference, some of your adult team members may opt to stay/sleep in a Marri...

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

Yes, what Jennifer said. Expect the adult camp to be a different and unique experience from what you experienced previously. You will likely be the youngest person on your team. Everyone else on your team will have a high level of enthusiasm because like Jen said, they're all there on their own dime...

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

Is the 4-day not being offered during your spring break? For all the reasons P51 mentioned, you should at least go for the 4-day if its available. That extra day will make a huge difference, and it doesn't cost a whole lot more.

Re: Schollarship questions

Vince makes a good point. You really wanna stay with your age group. Age isn't really a factor in the adult camps, but for a good cohesive team of youngsters, it's a good practice. That's the reason I did Space Academy Level I twice. In the early 90s, That was the program name for grades 7-9. Level ...

Re: Adult Week Long October 2016

Grolsch is quite good! I don't drink beer anymore, but if I had to have one, that'd be one I would be willing to have. The Library serves up the best Old Fashioned I've ever had, apparently it's their house specialty. I've taken quite a liking to those so whenever I visit I make sure to get one of t...

Re: Looking for old teammates

Probably not as much as I should be. I only live an hour and a half from Sprocket. I try to visit every few months. I do a lot of volunteer work for the alumni association, but most of that is done from home.

Re: Looking for old teammates

If you can give me the date of graduation from the certificate, that might help in obtaining a list of trainees from that week (if such a record has been kept). I probably can't get any personal info like phone numbers or street addresses, but maybe the names? I'll give it a shot.
