Here is the place for the admins or moderators to do their annoucements. Or, if you have bought a new scope and want the whole world to know, do it here. Basically this is the place for any astro first-hand news.

I'm ok. I will bring my 12.5 inch. I will probably reach there at 8 or 8 plus.

I'll walk over from my home and bring my 80mm refractor. Excellent opportunity for my wife Sherry to come along and have a chance to view the sky with the better scopes of others... she has seen through my small refractor a few times.

Like those who have to explain to wives about staying up late into the night watching 22 crazy guys chasing a dumb soccer ball, it'll take time for some of us to explain to spouses the wonders of staring into 'empty' space... and that it has nothing to do with day-dreaming... :D :D

See you all there!
