Convention Corner

The NCC holds a Convention every year over the fourth weekend in June. Don't make the mistake that our venue once did and assume that it is the last weekend. It is definitely the fourth weekend.


Most of the Convention activities are held at the following location:
Pritchard-Laughlin Civic Center
7033 Glenn Highway
Cambridge, OH
but there are a few other locations as well, shown on the map of the Cambridge area.

This year our Convention Chairperson will be Rick Jones. Rick is heading up a brand new team of Jane Filippini, Roger Loucks, Sandy Bridwell-Walker and Tarzan Deel.


You will find the registration form in the April Crystal Ball, or you can click here for the PDF. We would encourage you to complete the online registration form. It will save you the effort of printing the form, completing it, and mailing it with a check to NCC. The online form reduces data entry for NCC, and thus, the chance for errors. You pay for registration using your Paypal account if you have one, or you can enter your credit card information. If you encounter any problems, please save a screen shot and send it to
