Camp Orenda Girl Guides Fri Feb 9- Sat Feb 10th

Post by DaveMcCarter » January 28th, 2018, 7:05 pm

The 1st Dutton Girl Guides are camping at CAMP Orenda on Friday February 9th and Saturday the 10th, The camp is located on Truman Line, Belmont , just east of Highbury Ave. They will be at the Norloki Site; which is near the creek and furthest from the main road. Hopefully not spring flooded.

They wish to have several Amateur Astronomers bring out their telescopes and show off all that the night sky has to offer.

Please respond if you think you can make it.

David,

Is this meant as a single observing event with two nights being offered in the event of poor weather? Or do they wish to have two nights for two different groups?

What time will people be arriving?

Hi Norm

It is one group and two nights, in case one night is cloudy, like tonight (Friday) will be/is, then maybe Saturday night.

In an earlier version of this post I erroniously thought the star party was tonight, but I should have read the Subject line. DUH! Next Week!

Of course the forecast is still dire for next weekend too. Perhaps the worst snow storm of the winter my wife tells me.

I assume that this event won't be going ahead tonight. Unfortunately I can't make it out Saturday, will be at the Knights game.

Given the forecasts for snowfall and clouds all weekend, I've just informed Tammy and the 1st Dutton Girl Guides that we won't be attempting to observe this weekend.
