Thumbs up A new SPSP Report, by Rodstar

Hi guys

Rodstar (Rod Berry) has emailed me his SPSP event report, which I have now uploaded onto the website.

The article is listed under the Event Reports section, or you can get straight there via this link:

Stellar Time, but scope for improvement

It's subtitle would be "The good, the bad and the ugly of the SPSP"

Rod has submitted a very well written article, and pulls no punches in suggesting some improvements for next year. The report also contains his observing log from the 2 nights out under the stars.

It's well worth a read, so check it out.

Anyone else with an SPSP event report (seeker, xstream, robby, anyone else?) is welcome to email me their report (with pics?) and i'll upload it to the website.

Thanks

Nice one Roddy.. Very well written. Gave me a few laughs anyway.. Have you sent a copy to the ASNSW? You want me too?
Full credit!
PS.. Hopefully I'll put together a little report over the next few days, incuding kangaroo!
Cheers

lol I forgot the kangaroo story when I wrote mine!

I'm sure the powers that be at the ASNSW will read this if they're interested.. there's a few members that read the forums.

and I agree, it made me laugh.. especially the blokey-ness (and of generous proportion)

Very well written.. expect nothing less from a lawyer!

Thanks boys for those remarks. Hope I am not blacklisted by ASNSW!

We never did get that shot with you and the 'roo, did we Robby?

Great report Rodstar
I organize quite a few events myself, I will keep some of those things in mind, to avoid the pitfalls.
Sounds like a great event, I look forward to getting along to one myself.

Hi all.

Mike Kerr, president of ASNSW, contacted me after reading mine and Rod's SPSP reports, and had some concerns that some of Rod's points could be misleading for the casual reader. I have given Mike the right of reply and with his permission, have added his email as an addendum so he can clarify and provide explanation for 2 of Rod's main points. You can read Mike's email at the bottom of Rod's report.

Robby + others, where are your reports!??! Slackers!

Iceman,
Things are crazy over here in NZ at the moment. This is the first time I've logged into Iceinsapce for a couple of weeks!!!
Since SPSP, I've been to Perth, Adelaide, & Singapore, & Auckland. All seperate trips, all driving me crazy!!!
Loved Adelaide. Very nice spot. I see they are trying to attract new blood into the town. Hmmmm one day maybe!
SPSP report is started but still in bits. Hopefully soon it will be finished. Hopefully before the next one rolls around.
Time to have a browse & catch up with the rest of the forum.
Cheers
