Starfest 2013

August 8-11, Mount Forest, Ontario - (3 hours NW of Toronto, 3 hours NE of Detroit)

Skies are "Green" on the Light Pollution map. Plenty of excellent speakers - the depth and breadth of the roster of speakers is far greater than most other large star parties. Schedule

Why, yes, I am one of the speakers.... :grin:

Online registration is still possible.....

Hope to see some of you there....

Dave

Why schedule two of the greatest star parties for the same week ? In a world that makes paranoia fashionable, Starfest and Stellafane continue to conspire to put me in a existential conundrum : Which one to attend ? Would you please alter the spacetime continuum, as was done three years ago, so I can attend both?
Having missed Stellafane twice for Starfest, we will make it to Springfield this year. Please have some fun there for me, Dave.

Hi, Howie. See you later on then, at Chiefland or WSP...

And, for the public record, I note your kind donation of a door prize for Starfest! Thanks.
