All,
It is with great disappointment that I am once again forced to cancel the Open House and picnic due to weather. The current forecast for Saturday calls for at least a 40 to 50 percent chance of possibly heavy rain, which is just not going to work. To all the newcomers who were planning to attend, welcome to the most frustrating aspect of our otherwise wonderful hobby. I've had an awful run of luck with weather for star parties so far this year, but hopefully we will have better weather this summer. Next month many of us will be at the Texas Star Party during the prime observing weekends, but the following weekend at first quarter (May 23) I have scheduled a new event, the Novice Night, where veteran observers like myself will be on hand to provide some hands-on guidance to any novice observers who bring out their scopes (note to veteran observers: I need volunteer mentors for this event; let me know). Hope to see you all out there next month!
