We will see you there. I will try to bring more scopes this time around. I don't think I gave your setup crew enough work to do.

In 2009, I have to make a Speed Run after NEAF to the Mid South Star Gaze...prolly leave afternoon of Sunday to get to French Camp, MS by Tuesday, 4/21...about 1,161.23 miles...

But I won't miss NEAF 2009 assuming the cricks don't rise and the woods don't burn. NEAIC 2009, too... And, now, I even know where to park...:grin:

Energizer Bunny? I've got two boys you can add on that list!
I made reservations a few min ago at the Holiday Inn! Evgeniy is sooooooo excited and so is Jonathan! They are both looking forward to helping out Uncle Alan and seeing Mike, Mark, Uncle Scott, Aunt Diane, etc!
Looks like Dad may be pushing glass at Stellafane again!

There was talk of an evening observing session a while ago. Is that idea still alive? If so, would venders or the public bring scopes and whatnot, or both? I can imagine a very crowded courtyard if everyone that stays overnight for both days brings an instrument for Saturday night.

I can't wait to see my boys again, Carl. :bounce: Nikki and Jason will be joining us to help out Uncle Alan as well. After seeing last year's NEAF on the Webcast, courtesy of Astronomics, they will not let us come without them. :)

Can't believe it's fewer days to NEAF '09 than it is back to NEAF '08...as the two frogs said, "Time's sure fun when you're having flies..."

This is something I mentioned to Alan as soon as I heard the dates for NEAF 2009...this is the weekend of my wedding!! :foreheadslap: :jump:

The soon-to-be Mrs. Teeter allowed us to plan the wedding and honeymoon around the New Moon weekend for April, but we just couldn't squeeze NEAF in there as well.

While we may make an appearance on Sunday morning, I doubt we could recoup enough of our deposit moneys to move the ceremony and reception to the RCC Gymnasium. ;)

Hopefully see you guys on that Sunday!

Take care,
