Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones and seeing the pure joy come from a child under the eyepiece for the first time, we all love star parties...
 
And it's time to start the 2018 calendar.
 
As always, this thread will be a work in progress.
 
If you'd like to have a star party added, or see something that needs to be changed, feel free to PM me with the relevant information. Websites for the star parties are also a must so that I can provide a link to them.
 
Our hope is that you'll find this post helpful and will be able to attend a star party near you, learn something new and most of all -- have fun!
 
Clear skies.
