Nice!!! BTW that webpage appears blank below the photo and above the NAR logo when I view it until I move my mouse around in the white area, then "About NARCON" appears if the mouse is on the left side of the page...is that intentional?

Nope, not intentional, just a limitation of the web platform that I haven't quite figured out. When I get a break from responding to emails I'll take another hack at it.

Are you coming to NARCON?

Man I am really considering it! It's a 6 hr drive and I am going to see if I can talk a buddy into coming too. We both went to NARCON 2012 in Hutchinson KS and had a blast. Since that time he has gotten out of the NAR, so I am wondering do you have to be an NAR member to attend?

Also what time do things start on Friday? That would help me decide whether we need to come down Thursday night, or if we can leave a decent hour on Friday morning.

One does not need to be a NAR member to attend, although your friend will probably want to sign up before the weekend is over.

Things will get underway at 7 PM of Friday.

See you there,
James

In addition to all the great talks, the one thing absolutely not to be missed will be John Pursley's walkaround tours of the Saturn V on Sunday!

Many of us know John from the numerous NAR scale rocketry championships he's won or from the incredible scale wraps he sells on eBay. But all that rocket knowledge long ago led John into an additional "career" of consulting on real space vehicle preservation/restoration. Pursley has been a consultant on all of NASA's Saturn V restoration projects including the one at JSC. He's also been a restoration/preservation consultant on some of the shuttles and recently helped with the restoration of command module Columbia's cockpit windows and the Apollo 1 hatch display. In fact, I hear John's on his way to Kennedy this week to help do a deterioration assessment of the Saturn V in the visitor center.

To put it bluntly, NOBODY knows more about those display Saturns than John. Getting to have him lead a guided tour of one is just a fantastic opportunity.

Not to discount the rest of NARCON which I'm sure will be great, but getting to tour the Saturn V with John Pursley is worth the trip to Houston all by itself.

If you are planning to attend NARCON (and you should!) please be aware that the special rate at the hotel can only be guaranteed through Thursday, February 1.

https://www.narcon2018.org/hotel/

We have a great lineup of content set for NARCON, including model rocketry, high power rocketry, and real space subjects, in addition to a keynote presentation from five-time astronaut Scott Parazynski. If thatís not enough, rocketry legends Vern and Gleda Estes will be in attendance!

We just received word here at NARCON Headquarters that Lee and Betty Piester will be attending NARCON 2018! It's not too late to register and come rub shoulders with rocketry royalty!

Just a gentle reminder that today, Friday, February 16, is the last day to purchase NARCON banquet tickets. We'll keep event registration open until the event begins, but if you'd like to hear Scott Parazynski's keynote address Saturday evening you'll need a banquet ticket.
