Once you get to Ely, you'll have many choices for accommodations and ground transportation. The city has almost 800 hotel rooms and we'll offer shuttle services from the hotel areas to the venues we will be using for the convention.
Sessions will be held at White Pine County High School located about 3 miles from the golf course. Shuttles will run throughout the day between each location.
The Sedan Crater is the result of a nuclear detonation test conducted within the Nevada Test Site on July 6, 1962. Located just 12 miles southwest of Groom Lake (Area 51), the crater is a man-made object that can be seen from earth orbit with the unaided eye. The 1,280 by 320 ft crater was created by a 104-kiloton-of-TNT nuclear explosion buried 635 feet below the desert floor.
The 2016 NSS Convention will include a pre-convention field trip to this historic site.
