NARCON 2018 will be held February 23 through 25, 2018, in Houston, Texas. JonRocket.com will be there as a vendor.
NARCON is the National Association of Rocketry’s annual convention. The three-day event features guest speakers, technical presentations, and a banquet on Saturday night. A special feature for the 2018 convention is the option to tour Space Center Houston with rocketry enthusiast and aerospace historiography, John Pursley. Pursley will lead a very special “walk-around” tour of the Saturn V on display at the Johnson Space Center, highlighting elements of the multi-year conservation project in which he participated.
We had a fun time at the National Association of Rocketry’s 2014 Convention, NARCON, in Cocoa Beach.
Our room had a wonderful view of the beach and ocean, but the event kept us so busy that we had little time to stay in the room.
We covered four tables in the vendor room with an assortment of rocketry products.
We had the pleasure of meeting many interesting people including Vern and Gleda Estes.
We introduced a couple of new products which will be available from JonRocket.com soon.
Designed by Chris Michielsson, the Pigasus is a new kit from Odd’l Rockets.
Chris also designed the new plastic parachutes for JonRocket.com.
The plastic sheet is part of a parachute kit which can be used to make a 12″, 15″, or 18″ parachute.
Bracha and I had a wonderful time at NARCON. We would like to thank and congratulate the organizers for bringing a world-class event to Central Florida!
