Thanks Ronan that looks like an excellent lineup though sadly I can't make it myself, right in the middle of late shifts at work!

I'd encourage anyone whether they be new to the hobby or wizened observers to try and make it to this event, and indeed any of the other similar events held across the island during the year. Apart from the lectures there's always excellent craic on offer and the sideshows of equipment, books and pictures always add greatly to the events.
