The Olympic Astronomical Society of Bremerton WA will be hosting our 11th annual Camp Delany star party at Sunlakes State park near Ephrata Washington 24 to 27 April. The cost is $55 for all nights and includes a bunkhouse with heat, hot showers, all meals and dark skies. RV space is limited and is dry camping so sign up early to ensure a space. I have attached the sign up sheet and all the rules. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I hope to see you there.

We have had a rush on RV spots and Camp Delany RV spots are full, there is plenty of bunk house space left!

Bummer.

My wife and I were looking at my son's plans at the end of April to see if he could go with me.

I guess that we took too long to decide...

We're pretty much tethered to the motorhome.

Still, I had a great time last year. I'll think about making it a visual outing. It will also depend on how our schedule shakes out for late April. That's the reason that I didn't register on the day you announced it.

All the RV spots are full but there is still plenty of room in the bunk houses so sign up to get your spot!

We still have bunkhouse space available but today is the last day for sign up to avoid a late fee of $50. we have 44 folks signed up so should be a good time. I will be holding a mirror cleaning workshop as well.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Camp Delany last week, the weather did not allow for much observing but it was great company in a great place. Thanks for pitching in and making our 11th annual Spring event so good. Our 25th annual Fall Camp Delany is coming up 24 to 28 September and I will put a post with sign up sheet out in July.
