TARC Team Students’ Invitation to NARCON-2017
Originally posted to the NARTARC Yahoo User Group.
The 2017 NAR Convention (NARCON 2017) will be held February 24-26, 2017 in Herndon, VA, near Dulles Airport and the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center.
We will be holding an R&D competition for $1,000 in cash prizes on Friday evening. It will not be sanctioned for award of NAR contest points, as we want to also welcome R&D reports on high power rocketry.
We will offer a large range of breakout groups on topics in hobby rocketry and in professional spaceflight on Saturday. There will be one track of breakout groups dedicated to how-to topics pertinent to TARC, and students who are registered members of a TARC 2017 team will not be charged a registration fee for NARCON.
[ A special rate has been established for TARC students (the $5 registration fee will be refunded when the student comes to the registration desk at the conference site). ]
Keynote speaker for NARCON 2017 at the Saturday evening banquet will be Lee Piester, founder of Centuri Engineering Company, who will be giving a fascinating presentation on the development and history of that famed company. You do not want to miss this.
[ TARC students are welcome at all scheduled events over the weekend. However, the Saturday dinner and speaker is separate from the event registration and has to be registered for separately. ]
Sunday is your day to visit the exhibits at Udvar-Hazy, five miles from the hotel.
There is a flier with basic information about NARCON and the R&D competition posted in the “files” section of the NAR TARC Yahoo group.
[ The referred to flier can be viewed here ]
Read the flier, pass it along, mark your calendars, and begin planning your trip to DC.
