Reservation deadline: June 2!
Join Lois and Phil Matisak as they ‘Take Off’ for a trip down to Huntsville, Alabama to visit The U.S. Space and Rocket Center on June 22! They’ve made reservations for our group to see and experience the many exhibits and interactive opportunities, including the world-premiere exhibition, ‘Apollo: When We Went to the Moon,’ which chronicles the timeline from the beginning of the Space Race – a time when the U.S. and Soviet Union competed over their accomplishments in space exploration – to the collaborative culture of the International Space Station program and beyond.
Experience the best of technology and exploration through the eyes of the engineers and in the boots of the astronauts who took us to the moon 50 years ago. Enjoy an Apollo 11 launch experience and explore artifacts and media memorabilia highlighting the turbulent nature of this pivotal era in our history.
But. wait! There’s more! General Admission includes access to historic Shuttle Park, Rocket Park, and all indoor exhibit areas such as the main museum atrium and the Davidson Center for Space Exploration.
The cost for this tour is $13 per person. Reservations must be confirmed by June 2, and paid in advance (checks payable to the Music City Miata Club or via PayPal below*) by June 2. Please send your check to Lois Matisak at 703 Longview Drive, Mt. Juliet, TN 37122 by June 2. The Space Center requires 1 check for groups to verify the headcount and cut down on check-in time at the gate.
We will be leaving from the Cracker Barrel at Murfreesboro, I-24 exit 81-B at 8:00 am. Please arrive on time with a full belly, full tank of gas, and empty bladder, as usual. If you plan to eat breakfast at the CB, please make your plans accordingly. We will leave promptly at 8:30 am, so be sure to arrive on time. (And of course, if your plans change and you can’t join us, please let us know so we’re not waiting for you needlessly).
We’ll be taking a combination of Interstate and country twisty roads, with appropriate breaks, to arrive at the Space Center prior to our group reservation time at 12 noon. More details will follow in the next few weeks, including and most importantly, where we will eat before heading back to Nashville.
Make your reservation NOW! RSVP to Lois Matisak at 615-476-6291 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 2.
