This year the world celebrates the 50th Anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon! What better way to celebrate than a trip to Space Center Houston, Johnson Space Center and Mission Control? Special exhibits will be on display to celebrate this milestone in mankind’s history and Johnson Space Center’s Mission Control room has been restored to reflect the way it looked during the Apollo 11 mission.
Hosted by the USS Zavala, the Region 3 Starfleet Day at Space Center Houston will be extra special this year. Start making your plans to be part of the celebration by joining us on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
To reduce your cost of attendance, Region 3 is once more providing pre-paid, advance-purchase tickets. With fees included, your total is $18 per ticket (regardless of age). This requires a minimum 15 ticket purchase so please get your payment submitted by the deadline. Purchase your tickets by going to firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment MUST be received no later than Tuesday, September 3, 2019. There are no refunds for this type of advance group sale purchase.
Following our day at Space Center Houston, we will convene for supper at 6:00 pm (we know you’ll be starving by then after the day of activity) at Victor’s American Diner and Deli, 1425 NASA Parkway (literally next door to SCH).
Space Center Houston opens for visitors at 10:00 am. Parking is $5.00 after 9:00 am. We will gather in the parking lot prior to opening to distribute tickets at 9:30 am. We will convene at precisely 10:30 am for a group photo inside. Dress casually for your busy day at SCH (Region or chapter shirts or any Star Trek themed shirt) and bring your uniform to change into for supper (another group photo op).This year the world celebrates the 50th Anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon!
