MidAtlantic Mirror Making 2006

Other [O]
Mid-Atlantic Mirror Making Seminar #6 Announcement Delmarva Star Gazers will host the Sixth Mid-Atlantic Mirror Making Seminar March 17 through March 19, 2006, at the St Jones Preserve, Dover, DE. Mirror makers and other attendees should check into the St Jones before 11:00 AM. Activities begin at Noon, March 17th 2006. 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, and 10” F-6 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. Mirror grinding, polishing, figuring and testing assistance will be provided by Steve Swayze, (Swayze Optical), David Groski (Stellafane 1st Place in Optics), Bill Hanagan, DAS, 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 St John’s Preserve can comfortably accommodate 15-20 people overnight; sleeping rooms and bunks are dormitory style with common facilities. We can accommodate ladies and gentlemen due to the multi-BUILDING and multi-room layout. Please be aware this is a NATURE FACILITY, not the Hilton. You will need a sleeping bag. If attendees exceed the bunk capacity there is ample room for air mattresses in other rooms. Accommodations are available on a first come, first served basis. All meals will 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 December 1, 2005, to provide sufficient lead-time for ordering supplies. Please note that mirror and tool fabrication and delivery normally takes 2 or more months from date of order. Full payment must accompany the registration. Since a large percentage of the 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.
