Dress for the Ball:  Mess Dress/Black tie

The National Defense Industrial Association Rocky Mountain Chapter is proud to be presenting the 38th Annual Rocky Mountain Ball.  This year’s ball will be held at Cheyenne Mountain Resort on August 20, 2021.  This Mess Dress/ Black Tie event is a long-standing tradition with Colorado Springs military and national defense industry communities.  We invite you to participate. 

We will once again present the Hartinger Award at the Ball honoring a significant contributor to the US military space mission. The Hartinger Award Winner for 2021 is General David “DT” Thompson, Vice Chief Space Operations.

We will also present our Patriot Awards honoring military members who have gone above and beyond in the performance of their mission. We will be posting more information about the Patriot Awards recipient as we get closer to the Ball.

The Ball is hosted by the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Association with NDIA member companies participating in the purchase of tables, sponsorships, or seats at the event.  Government guests, as always, are not charged for attending and are seated with industry hosts.  Government guests at the general officer level are seated in the VIP area.  With the purchase of a ten-seat table, the industry provides four seats at their table for government guests which are assigned by the Ball Committee.  The Ball Committee uses great care in the seating process to avoid potential conflicts of interest between the government and industry participants.
