We will hold our first GBM soon to recruit new members. NASA SL has begun preparing a Request for Proposal for the 2021 competition. If accepted, we will then be allowed to compete and go to Huntsville, Al, in May for competition. IREC will continue working on their rocket regardless if the competition is held next year. If it is held, they will travel to New Mexico.
