Beaver Campfire Wednesday, Oct.21st 18h-20h

Post by DaveMcCarter » October 6th, 2015, 12:08 pm

London Members will set up a few telescopes for lunar observing at a Beaver Campfire on Wednesday Oct 21, 2015 at the Bryson Centre (behind Sylvan Scouting Headquarters on Windermere) starting at 18h to 20h ( 6pm to 8pm )

The moon will be about First Quarter, and if the weather cooperates, the beavers will enjoy seeing a few craters.

The weather is not looking good for Wednesday evening. 60% chance for thunderstorms and rain.

As far as I know, there is little opportunity for an inside activity.

I've called Kevin Gunn and left a message to advise that there is little point to setting up scopes this evening, due to forecast rain and possible thunder storms.

Hi all.

I got a call back, and explained that the weather prospects for this evening are poor to terrible, unless you like thunderstorms.

We are NOT setting up telescopes at Scout headquarters tonight.

I'm there anyway, so in the off chance that the weather holds for a break in the skies I will bring a dob. Otherwise, I'll expect Thor to smite me mightily. Bright side: T Storms make GREAT firestarters!
