The NARCON 2018 team is thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Scott Parazynski, a five-time Shuttle astronaut and a seven-time spacewalker. Dr. Parazynski is the only human to have both flown into space and stood on the summit of Mount Everest. He is the author of the book "The Sky Below: A True Story of Summits, Space, and Speed," published by Little A Books.

Wow! Guess what book I am reading right now. :-)

Parazynski mentions model rockets several times in the book. He even describes the Big Bertha in detail.

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.

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.
