Oh dear

The last time I bought a record was in 1978 ("Some Girls" by the Stones, their last decent record), I've never seen a full episode of the Simpsons and I don't know very much about sport, except for Manchester United (some would say that means I don't know very much about football either).

Well Done Roy for sticking with this and making it happen. I have just read the whole thread (took me a while).
After a fair few public observing events Meath Astronomy Group has officially started as a club in August (still yet to join IFAS). As part of the club proposal we have determined that we would like to do some charity type events 'Astronomy for Charity' along with outreach/public and club observing nights. To celebrate our 5 day anniversary : ) may I suggest that I bring a BBQ and make some homemade pork sausages which I will donate and cook either on the Friday evening before dark or on the Saturday evening. We would then charge a small fee for sausage rolls for those who are interested in dinner and the proceeds go to Barnardos? Hopefully this becomes an annual event and maybe a charity BBQ can become a tradition. For those who want to bring their own meat they would be more than welcome to share my fire. ps. I have already checked with mademoiselle Freda and she is happy for me to bring a BBQ as the last one she had blew away in the last storm! (touch wood). :scope:

Hi Kevin..

First let me start by congratulating you
guys from the Meath Astronomy Club
for yer persistence in getting a club up and
running.. I know that can't be easy, so well done.

As for the BBQ idea for the Skelligs Star Party
I think it's a great idea and I would be happy
to do anything for Barnardos(And I love a tasty bbq sausage).

So if it's Okay with Frida, then it's extra fine by me
if you guys attend with your BBQ.. I might bring a few steaks
and burgers and use your fire.

Cheers Roy

Hi Guys..

Just got off the phone with Frida
and she let me know that she has put
up a few fliers in the local area
I.E post office and other local stores
so a big thank you to her for that.

She also said that 22 people have booked
rooms and she only has 1-twin room,1 double room
and 3 beds in a dorm left.

Looking forward to seeing you all
in a couple of week.

@ Seanie Morris
A reminder of the projector and screen, also what ever
cables and bits we need to hook up our laptops. Thank you

Cheers Roy
