This is an update of the MSOA from William (Bill) Reeves, President of the MSOA. I will send these out periodically to let you know what is going on with the MSOA and to get help with the organization and activities of the organization.
1. First let me say Thank You on this Veteran’s Day to all the Vets that served our country.
2. Secondly I would like to thank the ones that showed up at Ellington this last Thursday for the arrival of the first two rows of restored consoles for the Apollo Era Control Center restoration project. I know everyone did not get the word of the event but we are still trying to get our contact and distribution lists up and running.
3. In regards to the distribution list, I sent our first message, a Welcome message, out a couple of weeks ago as a test of our new distribution list. I got about a 55% open report on the message and 41 bounce backs indicating problems with the email addresses we have. I have corrected as many as I could and this message will be another test of where we are.
4. For those new people on this distribution and all, I invite you to visit our website at www.mannedspaceops.org to find out all about us. And while there under the About Us Tab you will find a No Contact List. That is a list of all the people we have identified that supported manned spaceflights that were flown from the historic wing of the MCC that we do not have contact info for. If you see your name on that list or someone you know on that list that you can contact, contact or have them contact Bill Reeves at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update our contact and distribution list.
