Just went to the website and there is still nothing posted for schedule, speakers, vendors, etc... With the event a little over a month away, I would think it would be a little farther along. I, for one, don't plan on registering until I know what is planned. I SURELY hope that the weather is better than last year! It couldn't be much worse!

I registered and plan on going. The beautiful dark skies and companionship under said skies are why I am going, although a good speaker would be nice.

Look for me there - I'll have my TEC 180FL.

Anybody heard anything? It's two weeks off and there is still nothing on the web site. Guess I won't be going this year...
