So the feedback is already coming, like that..
Okay the vibe im getting is yer open to any dates. .
i will wait for a few more to sound off on this and then we'll move on it and get it rolling again. .
@lino, listen to Michael, i have a munster season ticket every year
and getting a chance to view the Autumn-Winter constellations from Ballinskelligs is worth missing 1 match for. We can catch it at the local bar..lol

Cheers Roy

Have to say that the summer Milky Way is the main pull to go down.
Skies are darker than anywhere in Ireland. Would be a shame to miss that.

But if October is the time I'll go along anyway.

Kerry Dark Sky have an event next year too. Might be going down twice !

I have to agree that the summer Milky Way is a big attraction, but whatever everyone else agrees to, we will probably all be down again.

Weather always seems to be good in September and would love to enjoy more of Kevin's outdoor barbie so that's my vote.
October not bad either!

Hi guys and gals..

Sept is totally out of the question as the BSP is taking place on the new Moon dates then and it wouldn't be right to hold it the same time as I am not out
to spoil anyone's star party.. So it would be either early August or Oct and my vote is for Oct with astronomical twilight starting around 8.45pm.. But Aug has the best chance of weather playing ball and summer BBQ's are always nice.. I need to set the dates as early as we can so we can get it Stickied here on the IFAS forums..

Cheers Roy
