Just my tuppence worth - the weekend 23rd-24th August is a New Moon, the Monday is a Bank Holiday in the North which may make it easier for some of us to travel up and down - not me, I work crazy hours anyway. The IAA is involved in an event the following weekend - that's a 5 day old Moon which has never bothered me much but then I live in a relatively light polluted place. The end of September runs into the Burren party and other events for the IAA, and I'm going on my holidays :)

Hi guys..

I sent out a couple of feelers to a few
places in the South Kerry region
and I got this reply back from Skelligs Lodge.

Dear Roy

Thank you for your inquiry. I will be happy to host your group. Could you give me how many members will attend ( not exact number) and I will be able to give you a quote. What kind of rooms are you looking for

All the best

Frida

Hi Paul..

I'm swayed toward August as-well
as the weather is normally fair around that
time of year...

I'll leave it out there and we can take a vote
with those that wish to attend..
The B.S.P is on in Sept 19th-20th so that weekend
is certainly out.. Next new Moon is late Oct, and late Oct
on the South West Coast is not a nice place to be with the
wind howling in off the Atlantic.

So hands up who's good for August 22nd-24th..

Cheers Roy

Michael.

The dates in August sounds good Roy, count me in.

Ok, I've just been in contact with Seanie
about this and it's all hands on board..

Can we have a show of names of those
who would like attend so I can go back
to the owner of the Skelligs Lodge with numbers
and see what kind of discount they will give us as
a group..

The dates are as follows Friday Aug 22nd-Aug 24th
Meeting up at Skelligs Lodge at 7.30pm on Friday 22nd
get our accommodation sorted and start setting up for a good
nights observing(finger crossed the weather plays ball).

Cheers Roy
