Annual Request for a Date

Yes, folks, once again I have to ask for a Date or multiple Dates. I know,
and fully expect the rash of humorous replies, but this is the best way to
go about this.
I need dates for Rocket Events in the 2004 timeframe. Memorable Dates in
Model Rocketry history. Memorable Dates in all Rocket History. These will
be recorded on the 2004 EMRR Calendar.
Speaking of which, we are in the final days, so get your orders in!
What I don't have is NARCON nor LDRS for 2004.
