I would like to join a club here in WI. Any fellow Wisconsinites belong to one? :confused:

May I suggest contacting the East Central Wisconsin Astronomers? They are based out of Pine River, just west of Antigo.

I've belonged to a few :) There is a complete listing at www.wisconsinastronomy.org.

As far as I know, the ECWA became extinct several years ago. The nearest clubs to you would be the NPMAS in Green Bay and the NEWSTAR group in the Fox Cities.

BTW, my club is hosting a regional Astronomical League convention this April in Port Washington. Hit up www.ncral.net for more info.

Newstar runs WOW (WI Observers Weekend) every year at Hartman Creek State Park near Waupaca. Best and cheapest star party in WI! They rent out the entire group campground that has 5 campsites and 2 observing fields.
