John, ill refer that to our sponsorship division :-D

Many thanks to Roy for organising such a brilliant event, and for the invite. The skies were fantastic , the company was even better.
Skelligs Lodge couldnt have been better, and thanks to Kevin and Liz for keeping us fed.

Also a small thanks to those of you who picked up various bits and pieces over the weekend from us :-)

Roll on 2015!

Clear Skies,

Stephen

Thanks for a great event Roy. Very well done.

Thanks Stephen (for the help with the telescope on the Friday night), I'll be in contact again about some of the bits that we spoke about.

Regards,

Noel.

I think I'm the only one still awake after that long drive home, so, on behalf of all the NIAAS contingent, many thanks to you all for sharing in a memorable weekend.

Special Thanks to Roy for all his hard work in organising the whole thing, and for being the life and soul of the party.

Many Thanks to Kevin and Liz for the superb barbie, to Stephen K for the prizes for the quiz, and to Frida for putting up with us all with such good humour.

And many thanks also to John for sharing his Captain Morgan rum, very tasty and much appreciated. I'll have to remember the Southern Comfort for next time.

Hopefully Jonathan will put up some of his photos when he recovers, and if any of my photos of the planetary and Moon conjunction are usable (which I doubt), I'll ask him to post those as well.

See you all next time.

Roy, you :rock: for all the hard work in putting together the weekend and kick-starting what we'd love to see as an annual event.

Many thanks to everyone else who helped out on the weekend, supplied food for the bbq, spot-prizes for the table quiz, etc and all the craic and :grouphug: in the dishco ;)

I'm never drinking again :whistle:

See you all soon!

John
