NWC Dedication - The offical dedication of the NWC will take place Friday, September 29th. There will be a Presidential dedication ceremony at 10:30 am in the NWC atrium, a luncheon at 12:00 noon in the OMU ballroom, and an open house from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm, in the NWC atrium. All in the College, including our students, are invited to these events. [Link] Posted: 9/25/2006 Source: NWC - NWC dedication.pdf

I will be at both the dedication and luncheon.

Jim Cantore and Gary England will be speaking at the luncheon.

I guess I'll see some of y'all there, if you go.
I don't think this is meant to be an open invitation to the public. Space is limited. Only the afternoon open house is open to the public.

I was under that impression as well. I think that the dedication and luncheon are for those affiliated with one of the organizations in the NWC or with the university (be it student or faculty). I think that you can attend the open house at 2:30 at the NWC though. I don't think that will include a full building tour...I think they will have a day in November when they have a major public open house where there will be tours of most of the building.
The "open house" on Thursday afternoon is for the invited guests only, not for the general public.

On Saturday, November 4th, there will be an open house for everyone, called the National Weather Festival. It will be held from 9am until 1pm, and will feature tours of the National Weather Center, as well as a bunch of activities for the entire family.

Included in those activities will be a storm chaser car show - you can find more at . I don't think all the links are working yet, but keep checking back.
