Last month, at the NARAM-57 awards banquet, the NAR announced the members of the Association who have reached 50 years of continuous membership. As of this date there are fewer than 40 current NAR members who have reached this milestone. These include legends in the hobby like: Bill Stine, Vern and Gleda Estes, Manning Butterworth, Trip Barber, Jay Apt, and Gordon Mandell.
As of 2016, UROC's very own Randall Redd is a member of this esteemed group. Randall is UROC's current NAR advisor and one of the founding members of UROC. It's safe to say that UROC would not be the club it is today without Randy! Congratulations to Randall and thanks for all of his support and friendship throughout the years and for reaching his 50th anniversary with the National Association of Rocketry!
