Everything will be ok....:D and if it does rain you can all come to squids astroboot emporium and give me lots of cash so I can buy more booze and cry myself to sleep of an evening! :)

Stardad, if you want me to collimate your scope and show you the steps to go through I'll be more than happy to oblige :)

Matt.

Hopefully Helen will have come up with enough people to give talks that will keep us all entertained on an Astronomical side if its that bad.

I'I probably stick the kids swimming gear in and we'll go off to the local pool for a swim.

Your wish is my command sir :D

I attach the draft timetable for talks and practical sessions. That should keep you busy!!

Helen

Help sessions revised - as at 10-29.doc

Due to the bad weather I will delay my triumphial arrival until at least Thursday...oh dear

The very latest forecast for tomorrow (Wednesday) seems to show rain during the morning, but clear(ish) skies for the first part of the night.

I was considering giving Wednesday a miss too, but, as Michael points out, the forecast at the moment is for the afternoon to be dry.

Update on the weather. Still mild and sunny spells Friday afternoon in to the evening.

A little glitch on Saturday lunchtime and then a return to sunny spells in the afternoon and hopefully good seeing on Saturday evening..

As you can see I am trying to stay positive...

Excellent work Mark. You've done enough to convince me to at least put the tent back in the car. :D

SGL6 has started

5 SGL members are now pitched at Lucksall with 2 more arriving this afternoon.

The site is perfect and the new toilet block and washing up facilities are excellent. The marquees will arrive tomorrow so everything is now set up.

Many thanks Dean, you've put things in perspective for me. I needed that. Been in the doldrums this week after seeing the forecast.

I will focus on just enjoying some quality time with my eldest. And also everyone else there.

Don't worry tent will be packed and looking forward to seeing everyone. Astro gear is staying behind in the slim hope it brings some clear skies. No big deal, i had nothing to bring anyway :D

Hi All,

Not sure if Helen is around and need an answer if possible from someone who has knowledge of these things.

Have we made badges for everyone or just the mods?

Regards

Chris

Everyone gets a badge :D I want glitter on mine please :)

Only about 12 hours until I set off.

"I don't care what the weather man says,

When the weatherman says it's raining,

You'll never hear me complaining, I'm certain

the sun will shine, I don't care how the weather

vane points,

When the weather vane points to gloomy,

It's gotta be sunny to me, when your eyes look

into mine;"

Let's make it a good one :)

Matt.

I picked up Hypernova's dob from his place this afternoon and I've now filled the boot with a lot of my 'stuff'. 3 more crates on the front seat tomorrow morning and pack my pj's and I'm on my way.

If someone would like to park a lorry or practise putting the marque tent up on my pitch to keep the grass dry I won't complain :D

Yes, there will be a badge for you (ie everyone, not just mods) with your welcome pack.
