TO ALL THAT WISH TO ATTEND

I received this email from the owner
of Skelligs Lodge.

Great. If you also tell me what kind of room you are looking for

Best regards

Frida

The Skellig Lodge
Ballinskelligs, Ring of Kerry
Co. Kerry,
Ireland.


Tel: +353 (0) 66 947 9942
Fax: +353 (0) 66 947 9947

So if you could take a look at the link
and let me know what type of room
you would like so I can get back to Frida
with numbers and rooms. And she will get
back to me with a group discount for this event.

Cheers Roy

sky in Ballinskellig..(Hopefully this is what we'll see)

Hi Roy,

A bed in one of the twin or bunk rooms will suit me.

Michael.

Hi Roy

NeilP is now also interested, so we would probably be needing three twin standard rooms

Nice1 Stevie..

I'm just waiting on Paul to get back to
me with the outcome of last nights
IAA Council meeting and then I'll have a rough estimate of who is attending. I also have a few on the maybe list.

I know this all weather dependant, but Iwill be going no matter what the weather forecasters say, iI'm in this hobby long enough to know that they get it wrong(sometimes major wrong).

So I'm just gonna bite the bullet, cross my fingers-toes and eyes and hit the South West coast of Kerry..

Cheers Roy

I think we are missing out on one very important question, and it has to be answered immediately:

Who snores? :devil:

I believe that this is an issue that must be resolved, as it can push friendships to the limit and who needs a grouchy astronomer? :P

Okay I gotta raise my hand.
I've been known to rattle walls.. Lol
But I hope most of the sleeping will be done after a long night observing.
So we will be all knackered and just pass out for a few hours during the day and no amount of snoring would disturb you..

And if all fails I will supply ear plugs for whoever is sharing a room with me.. Lol

Cheers Roy
