Sunday Evening Wiener Roast

To welcome everybody on Sunday evening, we will start with a complimentary wiener roast at the camp's fire pit. Roasting forks will be provided.

The food has been generously sponsored by Rod and Elena DeVries, of Eagle Butte Observatory in Dunmore, Alberta. Rod has also designed and sponsored patches for the first 50 registrants!

Astronomy Cinema 

Astronomy related programming will be presented throughout the week in the auditorium.

Open Mic

Participants will have the opportunity to make short presentations to the group on any subject they choose, as long as it is something generally related to astronomy or the hobby.

A laptop computer feeds an LCD projector and a sound system. Powerpoint presentations are ideal.

Buy-and-Sell Tables

Tables will  be available for attendees to sell their surplus stuff, and hopefully find some cool new stuff.
