Hi friends. I'm returning to https://calhouncountyparkwv.com for observing over the Labor Day weekend. Although the red barn is booked up we are welcome to setup camp near the power box on the hill. And flush toilets, hot showers are available to us.
This is a very informal star party. The skies are almost as dark as Spruce Knob but less exposure to high winds. Bring dew heaters. There is a grocery store 15 min away.
As the forecast gets closer I'll post when I am arriving.
Cheers,
Nick

hi Nick,

Awesome idea!!

If I wasn't already committed to going to the ORAS AstroBlast starparty that weekend, I would join you there at Calhoun.

Hope you have good luck with the weather.

Thanks Larry. I can't make it to Calhoun for the October party. :( But this park is really nice and the hosts are very relaxed.

Nick,

 

I'm planning to get down there later today and stay through Thursday night. I have other events to attend over the long weekend so I can't stay.

 

Andrew

Sadly, I am committed the rest of this week and into next week, but am gearing up for October.

That's too bad, fellas. I was planning on doing door prizes... including an Astrophysics 6" refractor. Oh well.

I could be the only one in attendance and still not win!

Well that's a shame! Do I win a door prize anyway? :D

The skies from my back yard were excellent last night. Not as good tonight, but still pretty good, so will be out.
