This year marks a very special year for NSL, as it is the 6oth year anniversary for not only the National Association of Rocketry, but also the 60 anniversary of when Vern Estes first met G Harry Stine. Join Vern  and Gleda Estes at NSL 2018, as they join with their friends from MARS along with all the NSL registered fliers on the field, and at the Saturday Night Banquet where you will hear them recount firsthand how they met G Harry Stine in May of 1958.

Vern will talk about how he developed Mabel, his engine making machine, which not only met, but greatly exceeded the needs of G Harry Stine’s fledgling company Model Missile Works. With Mabel producing engines faster and in larger quantities than Model Missile Works could utilize, Estes Industries was born. This is a story you will want to hear firsthand, and is a onetime opportunity that you will not want to miss!

The NSL-2018 Banquet will be a fun filled Banquet like no other, held at the Oak Valley Events Center in the Primary Host Hotel, Quality Inn, Geneseo.

Buffet style dinner with many choices, A kids price for kiddo’s 14 and under.

When registering as a flier be sure to register for the banquet. The food is great, the dinner costs are very reasonable, but the experience will be absolutely priceless!
