SGL8 - Itinerary, General flow, Arrival..... ** PLEASE READ **

Recommended Posts

Hi All

When you arrive at Lucksall, there is no need to stop at reception to check-in. If anyone stops you, just say you are with the Star Party....

Follow the road to the rally field entrance (through the fenced entrance)

The Welcome Tent will be manned 10am - 4pm Thursday and Friday. If you arrive outside of these times, please come and find me - I will be pitched (from Wednesday) alongside the river bank, just past the Welcome Tent. The Welcome Tent will also be used to update general information - changes to running order and so on.

Next to the Welcome Tent will be two domed Event Shelters. These will be used for meeting points, some of the tutorial sessions and most importantly - it will be the home for the FREE TEA AND COFFEE!! :)

The general flow of the weekend is somewhat relaxed, but will be something along the lines of:


General help sessions, 1:1's and so on

5pm - Come and meet the Admin / Mod Team!

Come and say Hi, have a cup of tea/coffee and generally meet your fellow SGL'ers!

(A donation of cakes/biccies is usually a good ice-breaker!!)


General help sessions, 1:1's and so on

5pm onwards - BBQ Buffet at The Cafe

6:30pm - Sir Patrick Moore Memorial

We would like to give people the opportunity to share their memories and experiences of Patrick Moore. In addition, we'll show the video SGL made when we took part in a project to refurbish his observatories.


General help sessions, 1:1's and so on

11am - Bring and Buy Sale!

Your opportunity to trade your un-needed bits and pieces! Items range from little adapters to full blown set-ups! Check the Bring and Buy Sale board for items people may be bringing with them

If you are selling items, please:

- Try and bring a table

- do not wander off leaving your items unattended :)

3pm - Scope Tour

Our very own Helen will take you on a guided tour of some the telescopes out on display and you will have the opportunity to talk to the owners, take pictures, etc.


7:30pm - Night Sky Tour

If you are new to astronomy, or just want a good idea of what to look for, come and listen to Ibbo! give a tour of the night sky.

Please Note - Ibbo! is the only person permitted to use a laser pointer!

Please Note - If the skies allow, and there is sufficient interest, there may be a 2nd talk later on

Please check back here between now and the start for any changes, and remember to check the Welcome Tent for last minute changes!
