We have just opened online registration for the 2017 NAR Convention (NARCON 2017), which will be held February 24-26, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport Hotel in Herndon, VA. NARCON will include the following interesting rocketry activities:

•28 breakout groups on a wide range of topics in 4 tracks: model rocketry, TARC techniques, high power rocketry, and professional spaceflight
•A research and development competition with $1000 in cash prizes
•A banquet with Lee Piester as the keynote speaker, talking about the founding of Centuri Engineering Company in the early days of our hobby
•Displays and presentations by rocketry product manufacturers
•A tour of a local aerospace company on Friday
•Special tours of the Udvar Hazy Center of the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum on Sunday; it is less than 5 miles from the convention site

This is a great rocketry activity for those winter months where flying isn't so much fun. Student members of registered TARC 2017 teams will be able to attend NARCON free (the dinner is extra).
The event website with more details on the activities and online registration is information is
