Already done Paul, I scrolled through Starry Night
and took down a list of the interesting DSO's I want
to see, Printed em off and laminated em.

So hopefully the weather plays ball
and we get all the stuff on my list marked off..

Also would any be interested in having a table quiz
Saturday evening before we set up? Just a bit of a laugh
for us all to kill some time.( Maybe somebody might give us a prize or 2 for the winners)
I have the talks and workshop pinned down for 1.30pm on the Saturday,
We'll have Seanie's talk 1st, then I'll give a workshop and then we have
John Flannery giving a talk.. We could break for dinner and then have the table quiz?

Cheers Roy

hi Roy,

Hope all is well.

I just booked in another stargazer this afternoon with Frida. Gerry Moloney will travel down with me and I believe we will both be sharing the mixed dorm with a D. Vader dude :rolleyes:

See you all on the 22nd!

John
