Calhoun IL. star party

Hello, I am going to host a small star on what looks to be Fri. evening Sept. 26 with alternate night of the 27th.
I have a small farm about 50 miles due north of St. Louis Mo. just between Hardin and Hamburg IL. The event will be all night and any one can bring a camper or tent to get some sleep before returning home if they like. I can accommodate about 50 scope set ups and am in the process of coordinating with the St. Louis Astronomical Society as well. Anyone interested can PM me and I will try to keep everyone updated. This should be a fun evening of viewing and sharing the hobby, plus a chance to view through some different types of scopes during the evening.

I am cancelling this star party and rescheduling for a later date. There are two other events for the weekend of Sep. 26th and I am considering going to the Sangamon star party up near Springfield IL.

I will probably reschedule the star party following dear hunting season.
