Default Schedule for NARAMs Past

Greetings:

I would like to pose a NARAM question to the old timers on the group. Has there ever been a NARAM whose schedule overlapped with the start of a school year ? It appears that this happened this year with NARAM-59. Some Florida schools are in session already with other opening next week. I am curious because the close timing was a factor in my not going this year. I am preparing for students.

Looks like it will happen again next year, as well. NARAM 60 was just announced for August 4-10.

There is a nationwide trend to open school earlier in August, and in some cases as early as late July. See: http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/04/livin...feat/index.html

I will need to check the final schedule for 2018-19 when it comes out in a month or 2 but I can tell you that an ALL AUGUST NARAM will conflict with start of school year in FLA. It probably conflicts with other states' school schedules as well.

NAR needs to do an all July NARAM with a max of 5 days to stay relevant to 21st century vacation schedules (4 is preferred by some).

Ok, I will ask another question.

Has there ever been a NARAM held in June or July? All of the ones I remember seem to have July and August days mixed in (going back to NARAM 30 or so).
