Members Meeting, Nov 18th at space building in the CRC, 5:30pm - 8pm. 

Ever had problems with an igniter not lighting your motor? Ever run out of 
igniters and wonder what to do (other than call for Bob)?  Or what the actual  
difference is between an igniter and an ematch and why they're not 
interchangeable? Have you ever tried to purchase igniters or ematches separate 
from motors and wish you had easy access to extras?

The topic for this meeting is Do It Yourself high power rocket igniters and 
ematches.  Both ejection ematches (for lighting black powder) and igniters 
(for HP lighting motors)  use  nichrome wire and pyrogen dip kits of various 
formulations.  Come and learn from seasoned L3 experts in this hands on demos 
what the differences are as well as what you need to know to "dip your own".

There will also be some out-of-door burn demos showing the difference between 
various ignition technologies and tricks for safely getting a hard to light 
motors going.
