Hi Malcolm
Could you please put me down for Friday and Saturday night, including dinner.

Looking forward to seeing everybody.

Fingers crossed for the weather.

That's lousy news Wren - I always look forward to catching up with you (and your stories!) on camp. I do hope that your recovery is both speedy and full.

Hopefully we will see you in March.

I'm sorry Wren I know I'm a very sick individual but I couldnt help myself but laugh at your post lol lol 🤣 But in all seriousness gee I thought u knew that exercise is no good for anybody 🤣 Especially leading up towards an Astro camp that's just as taboo as buying new gear a week before camp you silly duffer I'm gonna miss you and your stories too damn it 🙄 Hope you have a speedy recovery and the March/April camp isn't really that far away cheers Jen xx
IS IT FRIDAY YET

Will touch base soon

Cool, I'll have mine there - so you're welcome to try it. I'm hoping to do some photometry work this camp rather than imaging. It will fit nicely onto Steve's ED120 as we have the same scopes! I'm hoping to get to SV by lunchtime Friday so see you there and then!

Well all packed. Clarence the Captiva is packed to the gunwales with a big dob and imaging gear and sundries!

See you all up there tomorrow or later if arriving later in the weekend. Thank you to all coming for supporting the camp. And especially to those who go above and beyond to keep our camp such an enjoyable experience.

Clear skies!!

Malcolm

Had a great time at Snake Valley again - some great skies after midnight on Friday night. Fantastic company as always!

Many thanks to Malcolm, Paul and Barry and all who made it another great camp!

Sorry to hear about your bingle Wren - look forward to seeing you in March!
