NOTICE: The CAR-SGC Board and the 2020 Conference Committee have a "wait and see" attitude regarding the 2020 CAR-SGC Conference. As it stands now, registration for the Conference will be postponed until mid-June so we have a better idea whether restrictions will be lifted in time to hold the 2020 Conference, October 18-20. 

Only in Delaware 

Come early, stay late! Spend a few days before or after the Conference visiting Delaware's beautiful ocean beaches, shopping tax-free for holiday gifts at the Tanger Outlets near Lewes and Rehoboth, visiting the new Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek in Southern Delaware or Winterthur in Northern Delaware. You might even want to climb on board historical planes during "Open Cockpit Day" on Saturday, October 17, at the Air Mobility Command Museum that is located at nearby Dover Air Force Base.
