Hello All ,here is an  early entry for your diaries!!! I am once again pleased to announce the dates for the 2018  Galloway Spring Gathering to be held from Monday 19th March 2018 until Sunday 25th March 2018,a move away from our usual February date to coincide with the Kielder spring bash.Running back to back gives people with a long journey a chance of a long stay without too long a haul.

Given the inclement weather conditions this year we may fair rather better.:icon_biggrin: Well we can hope.

The location for Scotland`s Premier Star Camp is the award winning http://www.drumroamin.co.uk/ campsite ,and as usual our hosts Lesley and Ralph Shell will be on hand to provide us with  a fantastic location,superb facilities and their renowned hospitality,all the bookings will be handled direct with the campsite.

Always popular are the electric hookups book early to avoid disappointment ,any questions feel free to email me or Lesley at enquiry@drumroamin.co.uk.

You can as always come earlier and stay longer,see you all in March,or if you need reminding November this year.

Regards

Mike

Will have a look in the work diary, would love to hook up again Mike..

Hi Mike,

I'm coming from Newcastle, so not as far as most (and prob from somewhere not too far from you?). Look forward to meeting everyone too.  I did read through some of the threads, it seems it's byo whiskey ?

Is the nearest supermarket for food shopping in Wigtown?

Thanks,

Rishi

Hi Rishi,yes Wigtown is the nearest,a co-op quite well stocked, a better selection in Newton Stewart.

There are loads of whiskies to try as everyone brings a bottle! just incase it`s cloudy.

See you there,

Mike

      Details have now been released for the 15th annual "Starfest" starcamp organised by Scarborough & Ryedale Astronomical Society. The 3 day event takes place in Adderstone Field, Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire between Friday 14th and Sunday 16th August. Astronomers from across the UK attend this event to take advantage of the dark skies in the North York Moors National Park and the forest has recently been awarded "Milky Way class" of the Dark Sky Discovery status.

      For those who have not attended Dalby previously, please note the facilities are basic! Its all about the quality of the skies.
       
      Guest speakers for the weekend will be announced in due course as they are confirmed.
      More information and a booking form can be downloaded from the Scarborough & Ryedale AS website (http://www.scarborough-ryedale-as.org.uk/saras/starfest/starfest-2015/). 
       
      The society can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.  To avoid confusion with other events using the name Starfest, we have opted for an offical hashtag for this years event of #DalbyStarfest15.
