Joe Hill is leaving us! Election for new Prefect.

From Joe Hill:

Good evening everyone.

I wanted to let you all know that I have accepted a job as a propellant manufacturer with Aerotech. I will be moving to Cedar City, Utah sometime in early-mid September. This is a huge deal for me, as it’s been a lifelong dream to have a job in anything rocketry related, specifically propulsion. 

With that said, it’s now time to try and find a replacement for me as prefect. The first three people that come to mind are Kurt Hesse, Mike Nay and Brent Bierstedt. These three gentlemen attend launches with regularity and I would trust all of them with the job, as I’m sure everyone else in the club would. If anyone else who is qualified is interested, please let me know. This is something we should attend to sooner rather than later. 

It’s been nothing short of an absolute pleasure being able to serve you all as prefect, sharing the enthusiasm for the hobby, whether it was at a launch, talking on the phone, mentoring, etc. The comradery in HPR is like nothing else, and I will never take it for granted.

Very respectfully,

Joe Hill

Please join me in wishing Joe good luck in his dream job!

Dennis Hill, the Prefecture Secretary will hold an election for a new Prefect. If you are a Tripoli member you may nominate someone by sending an email to The period for additional nominations and seconds will be open until EOD (12pm) Saturday, August 5, 2023. At that time, Dennis will initiate the election process on the ncrockets mailing list.
