SGL 3 - Reports, Pictures, Goings on...

Recommended Posts

Might as well start a thread to LOG all that went on. If we don't LOG it, then we'll soon forget. So, LOG your pictures, stories, anecdotes here and we'll compile a LOG of the best ones!!!

(You'll have to wait to find out why........!!)

With all that weather im suprised i could actually log on at all.

Mind you better that than being left on the shelf for 50 years :)

Best way to sum up the weekend was to say THANKS to everybody. :):lol:

Despite a bit of drizzle :shock: it was nice to meet up with you all and share a joke/drink :D

:) I had a LOGely time, despite (almost) constant LOGging down with rain - could even say it was raining cats and logs...

Honestly though, I must say I'm indebted to all of you for making the rain not dampen the weekend. I had a great time and already log - err, look - forward to the next one.

Thanks!

Andrew

I really enjoyed observing M81/82 & M51.

I was going to write the views up in my log but it seems to have disappeared. I have been keeping this log for years and it means a lot to me. Losing this log has really got me fired up :D:)

You've completely lost me with all this log business so here's a poem...

The Shark and the Swan.

On Tuesday I wasn't,

On Wednesday I was,

On Thursday I saw the weather report,

It was definitely off of course.

When Friday dawned I was still wavering,

But the burning thread's on the board,

They invaded my brain, I must be insane,

I packed my tent then it poured.

It poured on the M4,

P****d down in fact,

Many times I asked myself the question,

Am I blumming silly old ****.

I was pleased to see I wasn't the only ****,

There were plenty more like me,

Friends from far and wide,

They came to drink and maybe see.

Then Phattire in the p****** rain,

Whipped out his big cooks hat,

Knocked up a lovely Chilli,

He warmed us all with that.

It was hello to Mr Sharkey,

A kindly boy was he,

He kept the gears a running,

With oil that flowed like tea.

Jamie was a funny boy,

He's from Scotland you see,

I understood most of what he said,

When he was sober hehehe.

That was the first night over,

Stars were none to be,

So it's off to bed in my little old tent,

For a night of agony.

Fast forward to Saturday evening,

Just after another of Gregs delights,

Theres's Venus through the clouds,

A faint twinkling solitary light.

Then the clouds start to break,

Telescopes at the ready,

There’s Arcturus over there,

And more overheady. (That’s a welsh word that is)

So it's Clusters and faint fuzzies,

Whirlpools, cigars, and dobs

The seeing ain't half bad you know,

Never mind the frozen Knobs. (Bob's I mean)

So it's getting near to midnight.

There rising in the east,

The summer swan of Cygnus,

A huge and wondrous beast.

She sails the milky trail of stars,

They are home to you and me,

Look out and wonder little ones,

At the titanic galaxy.

Up and out into the past,

Back millions of years,

A mystery so divine,

It would bring you to tears.

So that’s a little tale,

Of Star Party number three,

Forget the rain, forget the clouds,

I'm sure you will agree...

A good time was had by all,

Here's to number four,

Here's to Mr Sharkey,

He’s got many friends I'm sure!

No trouble with the tyre. Had to branch off some roads to find a garage, but we soon got back to the trunk roads.

I twigged what the problem was though - bit of dirt in the valve was all it was. Soon had it cleared and then we were roaring along nicely!!!

Nice one Daz, I did have visions of you stuck in the middle of nowhere changing a wheel in that godawful rain :).

Good poem Matt :).
