The big announcement this year is that the sponsoring OKC Astronomy Club has reached an agreement with the board of Camp Billy Joe to construct a large building adjacent to the existing dining/exhibitors hall which will replace and be a major upgrade from the large tent used in the past. The building is just the first phase of a major expansion of Okie-Tex facilities at one of the finest dark sky locations in America. We will be seeking donors from past, present and future Okie-Tex attendees, but most of the building costs have already been made available through club member donations and past Okie-Tex receipts, which are held to re-invest in the event.
OKCAC will be in further touch with supporters about the building and expansion plan. By the way, we surpassed 500 total registrations for only he second time ever this year.
