NSCC Music Presentation For 2017 (Chases Until 2016)


The storm chaser convention in 2017 took place from February 17th through the 19th in Denver, Colorado at the Hilton Doubletree off Quebec Street and just south of I-70. This event was not attended in 2016 (as it was in Oklahoma City that year). This continues to be a great event each year, thanks to the great efforts of Roger Hill and his group!
