TARC Team Invitation

 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.
