I joined the society a couple weeks ago online and I never received anything in my e-mail or snail mail. I e-mailed the info@texasastro.org link on Friday and likewise haven't received a response. I'm not sure what I was expecting to receive per se but maybe a welcome letter and instructions for how to get on the forum/access their dark sky site.

try again and / or send an email to the membership coordinator (see the website or newsletter for the name).

you can download the new member packet from the web site
but someone really should send you a welcome or acknowledgement. plus you need the gate combination for the darksite. when i joined last year i had to send a couple followups. i was told they never received notification of a paypal pmt. they will reply - just a little slow sometimes. don't forget about the picnic on sept 7 at the darksite. your chance to meet about a hundred people and scopes.

since you sent the email on friday no one may have seen it until monday. you will probably hear something this week but definitely send a followup email.

Actually we have a nice dark site near Atoka, Ok. http://cleardarksky....AtokaOKkey.html

So move to the north side of DFW. North side, best side :)

People also go out to Comanche Springs (3RF)

A little further but darker.
