The last two years I have attended were brilliant Bob.

I'm doing my best to sort out work commitments to be able to come again this year; I really don't want to miss it.

Everyone works very hard to make this a great event. From the organizers to the speakers , all strive to give it their best. As with any event , we all need to support our hobby, I ask all of you to get involved in something.
To help the cause of ASTRONOMY. Please do whatever you can do to help promote it to our youth. Get out there, go out one evening and put your scope on a busy street corner and show people our heavens. If is not about seeing deep sky objects ,but our closest neighbors /The Moon/Venus/Saturn/Jupiter . All of these will blow away most youngsters as well as adults.


Just do it ! Or all of this will go away.
