Let us know if you guys work that out, and I'll split a donation between you. I'll need addresses, although I may have Kerry's.

Mike,

Is there any special instructions to give them to find the right place?

They should know the place by now.

Well yes, they should know and they may have printed out detailed directions and stuck them in my file, but if they get a new driver it might be a bit of a problem. I guess ask them to search for directions in a file under my name. I'd be happy to tal k to their dispatcher if she needs to call me. They should have my number.

And an important reminder to all: probably the only real rule I've gotta insist on is no open flames, charcoal or the like. It's a tinderbox this time of year. Thanks much.

Can we get a roll call for the weekend of 9/6-9/8?

I'm penciled in very lightly for the 7th (Sat).

My plan is to be there on the afternoon of the 6th and might stay, depending on weather, until Monday morning the 9th. I hope to see you there Steve (and Stacy?). I have connected with another astronomer in the Olympia area who may also come with his wife.

I have ordered the honey bucket, but only with hand sanitizer inside and not the wash station. The wash station would more than double the cost. However, if I get howls of protest I can call them back and get the wash station too, but need to do so soon.

After the last month of being a hostage employee at Whidbey Island for 4 days a week, I'm leaning on doing both weekends. I expect to be there until monday on the first weekend but only may be able to do Saturday night on the second weekend. If the boss doesn't want to work friday prior to the second weekend then I can make Friday and Saturday.

I would join you all over Labor day weekend but will be in Spokane for a wedding. The following weekend the wife and I have committed to joining the Seattle Astronomical Society star party at the group camping site at Brooks Memorial State Park

Enjoy Brooks, Len. I stayed with a bunch of friends at the ELC there, some time around 1990. We had mucho fun.

Sounds great Brad. If I do make it, I'll pitch in for the Honey Bucket. Looking forward to this!

I would love to get out there for at least three nights, 6-7-8, but will have to see what the weather looks like closer to the date. It's a $300 gas commitment. Not sure if I have any vacation left, so might have to take a hit there as well. It will all be worth it if the weather cooperates!

I don't blame you for your caution, Stacy. It's an investment for all, in some kind of currency. My biggest concern is just how smoky it will be. Most of us have two weeks. Pray for rain!

. . .and while I'm talking to Stacy . . . I'll be meeting a bunch of friends for the Dark Star Orchestra show in Bremerton Fri., 10/4. Why not get a ticket or two & join us?

Really need to get some quality observing time in. The August trip really didn't scratch that itch. Is there any clear air around this State?

That sounds like a blast Mike!

Well, still fence sitting about going tomorrow through Saturday. Suppose to be possible thundershowers Thursday so might get in Wednesday & Friday.

Anyone know if smoke is still in the air? If there are any road conditions going via Yakima?
