Hi everyone; it's time to get the 2013 Star Party list posted here. Please PM me with any Star Party dates (will need link to star party site), and I'll post it here in this link!

This post is intended to be an ongoing list of 2013 star parties by date, with links to each party's websites for more information. It's our hope that everyone will have a chance to be able to attend a star party this year!
