Hi All

Following the success of our previous presentations / star party's we have been asked if we can return again this year.

A few possible dates to propose from the school are:
Wednesday the 5th Feb
Thursday the 6th Feb
Wednesday the 5th March
Thursday the 6th March.

We would be looking for a main presenter and supporting members to assist with the equipment should the weather allow so viewing.

Before I commit can you let me know if your available for

1. Presenting
2. Bringing equipment and being available to help with the viewing
3. General help setting up / breaking down

Thanks

Bill

A big thanks to Dean and Dave for supporting the Evening

We despite the weather we had a good evening and I have already had some very positive feed back. Dean's presentation went down well and he involved the students by getting them to play out the Earth, Moon and Sun.

The magic eye piece Dave brought along was the icing on the cake, see attached image.
