MidAtlantic Mirror Making #13

Other [O]
Mid-Atlantic Mirror Making Seminar #13 Announcement Delmarva Star Gazers will host the Thirteenth Mid-Atlantic Mirror Making Seminar March 21 through March 24, 2013, at the Mallard Lodge, Smyrna, DE. Mirror makers and other attendees should check into the Lodge before 11:00 AM Thursday, Mar 21. Activities begin at Noon, March 21, 2011. The Lodge will open on Wednesday afternoon, Mar 20, for long distance travelers who wish to stay in the Lodge Wednesday night. The purpose of the Seminar is to introduce proven successful mirror making techniques and practices to those wishing to make their own mirrors. Special emphasis will be placed on successfully figuring the mirror. All mirror-making materials will be furnished and expert mirror makers will be available to guide each person?s activities. We will begin with 6? F-8, 8? F-6, 10? F- 6, and 12.5? F6 mirrors and tools with diamond generated curves; ready for 220 grit. Successful mirror makers will leave the Seminar with a fine-figured mirror ready for aluminizing. They will also have the skills, knowledge and confidence to repeat the process as desired. Although our purpose is to ensure each mirror maker is successful, there is no guarantee of results. Some mirror makers prefer to bring their previously started mirror projects that need some special TLC to turn them into fine optics. We encourage you to bring your project mirrors?up to 13?. Larger mirrors may be OK depending on specifics?but, please be aware that large mirrors may require more time and attention than are available in this environment. Mirror grinding, polishing, figuring and testing assistance will be provided by Steve Swayze, (Swayze Optical), David Groski (several Stellafane 1st Place Optics awards), Dr. Bill Hanagan, DAS, Dick Parker (Stellafane mirror makers) and several experienced mirror makers from Delmarva Star Gazers. Mirror making stations are on a first come, first served basis. Non-mirror makers are encouraged to attend; to watch the process, to learn, to ?get glasspushin? fever?, and to participate in other planned activities Mallard Lodge can comfortably accommodate 25-30 people overnight; sleeping rooms and bunks are dormitory style with common bathroom facilities. We can accommodate ladies and gentlemen due to the multi-room layout. Please be aware this is a NATURE FACILITY, not the Hilton. You will need to bring your own towels, blankets/sleeping bags, pillows, and toiletries. If attendees exceed the bunk capacity there is ample room for air mattresses (we will have a few to lend if necessary). Accommodations are available on a first come, first served basis. All meals will (Thursday thru Sunday) be provided by the Star Gazers. Fact: Delmarva Star Gazers like to eat? so bring your appetite. Registration: all mirror makers and attendees are asked to register by January 15, 2012, to provide sufficient lead-time for ordering supplies. Please note: the mirror and tool fabrication and delivery normally takes 1 or more months from date of order. Full payment must accompany the registration. Since a large percentage of your registration fees are used to order your materials there will be no refunds, but substitutions are O.K. should you become unable to attend. All we ask is that you arrange for someone to take your place and let us know about the switch ? financial arrangements are your responsibility. Come and join us; we look forward to your company.
