Hope to see you there, Mike! Sorry we will miss you Jackie but you will have better weather in Tucson, I am sure.

Do you have a direct link for information on the website? I followed the link in the first post and it only had information for fall 2012.

Also, I would be interested in understanding more about the accommodations. I would have to choose between taking my truck or motorhome. If I use the truck, I would have to have a way to charge batteries during the day. If it's possible to set up near motorhome parking, I could get power from the motorhome.

Thanks for any information.

Wade, sorry the website has not been updated but the information is the same. Your motorhome is welcome but it is dry camping. We do run power out to the scope field for telescope use and batteries can be charged in the meeting hall during the day. PM me and I will send along the sign up form.

Are there driving directions available anywhere? I am familiar with Sun Lakes State Park, but not Camp Delaney specifically. Also, what time are folks arriving?

I'll be coming across highway 2 from the Seattle area on Thursday fairly early so that I have plenty of time to set up. I would like to make sure that someone is there to help make sure that I set up in the right place.

Thanks,
-Wade

Wade, if you PM me your email address, I will send along a map with directions. We ask that you not check in until after 1 PM on Thursday so we can get set up. See you there!

There is still cabin space at camp Delany but there is a $50 late fee after 3 April so if you show up, be prepared! The reason is to discourage late sign ups because we purchase the food for the numbers we have and if people show up late we have travel to get more food! Looking forward to seeing you all there!

I want to thank Cliff and the other OAS people who worked so hard to organize and run this terrific event! Thanks!

My impressions are on the Pac NW / Mt. St. Helens thread.

Hi Cliff,

I wanted to add my thanks as well.

I had a great time, and would highly recommend this event for a springtime star party in the northwest. The geography of the area is spectacular. The observing area is convenient and well laid out. The people are great. I ran into some old friends and made some new ones. I am planning on making this an annual trip for me.

Thanks very much again to you and the other folks who organized and ran it!

-Wade
