Galloway is about a month after the SGL star party, towards the end of November I think? You guys are a bit more hardcore than the rest of us! 

Kielder is the week after and Kelling is end of September so for the really devout Star Party followers you can go to all four! :D

The main SGL star party is now in Autumn rather than the Spring. This lets us have almost exclusive use of the cafe space at Lucksall amongst other benefits.

What do you mean hardcore????

Sorry, it is a Friday night, I am relaxing with a whiskey or two, or three or four...............

I am not trying to distract from the SGL parties, although in trying not to, I have, sorry. I have a reputation to maintain :-)

I think I'll just relaunch the Sixpenny Handley star party for spring instead of autumn. I was put off doing so when there was talk of two SGL's :smiley:

Hi Grant,

Glad to see that the SGL Autumn event does not clash with the Scotland's Premier      Galloway Star Party    which is Wednesday 15th November till Monday 20th November 2017.

Of course, attendees can come earlier and leave later if they wish.  

This year I can attend both ............. great

Hope to see you there.

Cheers

Adrian

Heavens above ;-)  Well you certainly don't want to live in the depths of the South East and want to attend Star Parties do you?  Even Kelling is nearly 3 hours away!!

Bother!

I can't make the 13th as our half-term starts on the 17 (Officially). I could make Saturday into the following week, but I wonder, a) how many will still be around? and b ) will it be worth it?
