Stargazers Lounge April 2009 Spring Starparty Chat Thread...

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of bringing an electric dual Hot Plate.

It';s total power is 2,500 Watts. Both on would draw 10 Amps, but I shall only use the 1.5K plate, which pulls 6 Amps.

It will only be used to perhaps fry a breakfast, make Tea, Coffee,

Warm sausage and Beans etc. It will be used outside, but it will be made safe against any accidental contact.

Is there any restrictions on this appliance I should know about.

Cheers.

Ron.:)

... have a very "eclectic" music taste :)

I'll have headphones too... for some reason few people are entirely convinced by my liking for trance...:)

Actually, I always take my iPod to star parties but almost never get a chance to use it.

Trance, eh, James.

Actually, I'm quite partial to trance... :)

Are you bringing the lasers and dry-ice machine too?

I suggest we wait untill we have been back a day, and flood the forum with posts on how brilliant it was. Including the skies.

A colleague at work has shown an interest in SGL4 - he's not a member of SGL, but has in the distant past been interested in Astronomy.

He lives not too far from the site - would it be OK for him, to pop by on one of the nights (edit) it's clear, so he could see what it was all about?

He's 'optically aware', if you know what I mean and would be conversant with all the 'Star Party Etiquette'.

Good point.... I like Barkis' idea - lets stick 2 fingers up at the way in the traditional salute, go anyway, have a roaring good time, come back and spam the forum into oblivion with what a wonderful time we've had :)

Sounds like a plan to me!

Cheers,

Richie

Hi Barry,

I can't see that it would be a problem - do make sure you tell him that if he turns up after dark with his car's lights on, he will be lynched.
