Tomorrow's Observing
« on: Mar 31, 2008, 12:59:10 »
My boss, whilst I was on annual leave, has kindly arranged for me to meet the company director tomorrow at 5pm and then to go for a drink or two afterwards. This is all very nice (in the same way that sticking pins under my fingernails would be nice), however, it means there is absolutely no chance I will get to the observing session for 7.15

So, hopefully one of the other keyholders will be there to open up (if you are lucky enough to get a clear night) and I will join you all later on.

The clocks having been shifted, isn't the observing evening an hour later anyway?

True! However, it may be unlikely I would get there for 8.15 even. i don't normally get home from work till 7pm on a good night and it looks like I will be a minimum of an hour and a half later than usual.
