No problems to the guys that didn't show, completely understandable.

We had a group of 8 or so of us show up:
anthony (frogman)
louie (atalas)
narayan + wife (seeker)
mike (iceman)
brendan (brendan)
gary kopff (gary)
rod (rodstar)
andrew murrell (hector)

We had a good BBQ and chin wag.. everyone headed off at about 7:30pm.

Was a good fun night, despite no observing.. good to put a face to the names and have a good social chat. I'll post the photo up tomorrow, gotta wrap the wife's present for tomorrow

Thanks for coming anyway guys, hopefully we'll get together next Friday night (13th) for an impromptu session if the skies are clear.

Sorry to hear it was less than ideal. Ours went well, and Ponders has been delegated the task of committing it to paper, so I will leave this up to him

Suggest that next time make it a "Paintball Party", and bring your scope just in case

Unfortunate about the clearing after you left.

Try an all nighter camp-out next time! If it does clear up you will still be there.

At least you all had a great get-together.

I'm actually free on Saturday now, so we can do it friday or saturday, depending on what people want. I'll check what time the moon sets on both days.

I'll start a new thread for it too, it doesn't belong in here anymore.

I would like to add my thanks to frog man for hosting us on Sat night and the rest for some very interesting converstation.

Shame it cleared up.

how ever some one needs to educate wombats on the correct way to cross the road, this does not hurling grunts at the driver of the vehicle , think next time i will take the freeway.

Sorry I couldn't turn up guys... I didn't think it would have gone ahead with the rain! Fingers crossed for next weekend. Saturday would suit me better. I don't get home from work on Friday till at least 5:00

...and you look like a damn fine bunch of 'misfits' to me!
