Proposal for NASSAM 2022 in....

This is our proposal for NASSAM 2022 for the consideration of the Kappa owners. If the community seems to be in favor of our proposal, the investigatory committee will start working on actively planning the event. Due to the summer tourism in the proposed location, we need to begin VERY soon so we can make sure and secure a hotel.

NASSAM has only been west of the Rockies three times - Las Vegas, Nevada (2008), Flagstaff, Arizona (2013), and Stevenson, Washington (2015, usually referred to as the Portland event), and it has never made it to the coast. After NASSAM 2020 in South Dakota and NASSAM 2021 in Michigan, letís go to....

17th North American Solstice Sky Annual Meet (NASSAM)
KAPPA-FORNIA DREAMINí

Hotel
To be determined, possibilities:

In order to attend any of the Monday through Friday events, you will must have a full registration. A full registration will also include all weekend activities. A weekend pass will be available for attendees who only want to participate on the weekends before and/or after the primary events. The weekend pass will include a name badge, goody bag including local activity books, event info pamphlet, run maps, runs, access to vendors, and admission to social gatherings (drinks and meals not included).

Yes. We had a basic registration and made the banquet optional. It worked out pretty well as we had several that couldn't be here for the banquet due to prior plans, and some who didn't want to spend the extra for it.

The California coast sounds GREAT- not an easy drive from Colorado, but well worth it. We will be there.
