OAS Picnic.
« on: Jul 12, 2017, 10:12:11 »
    There is going to be an OAS picnic on Sunday, 27th August, on the field behind the Otford Village Memorial Hall, Otford. Bring your own food and drinks, and perhaps chairs. If it`s going to be sunny, then a small telescope may be fun to observe the sunspots, if any if anybody cares to bring one along. If the weather is rainy or inclement, then perhaps we can retire to the Bull pub opposite the field entrance/car park.

     I will put the list of possible participants on the table for the next meeting on the 26th July, so that interested parties can put their name on the list. It could be a fun afternoon, and if people are feeling energetic, they can walk the Solar System walk from the field, starting at the Sun at the far end.

     Let`s hope it is a good day out.

     Doug.

What a shame I didn't know about this earlier as I've just agreed to help run a radio building workshop at Chatham Docks on that date. Would have been nice to see everybody. Oh well.

No I've bowed out Carole. I was asked to help a friend run the workshop and it is paid work. Plus, not keen on paying for the pitch if it is a gamble if the DSC would even go ahead or not.
