Well, I'm a little later than usual this time, but....
 
With the new year now here, it's time to start the 2019 Star Parties calendar.

We all enjoy attending star parties. Whether it's meeting up with old friends, making new ones or passing a piece of our knowledge on to next generation - we all have star party dates circled each year on our calendars.

Our hope is that you'll find this post helpful, will be able to attend a star party near you, learn something new and most of all -- have fun!
 
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.

If you don't hear from me right away, I'm either working too many hours or I'm out in an ice fishing shanty somewhere on frozen Lake Huron. laugh.gif 

And as always, this thread will be a work in progress.

Clear skies.
