The Heart of Virginia Scout Reservation (where I work as Camp Ranger) is hosting the second annual "Heart of Virginia Star Party" on November 18-20, 2011. The camp is located in Goochland County, Virginia, about 30 miles west of Richmond just off of Interstate 64. This event is planned and managed by me (Ranger Tim) with additional help from the Richmond Astronomical Society and is open to the public.

This event will not have any organized programs other than a beginner's orientation on Saturday night at 7 PM. Observers and imagers are welcome. This is not a "Scout Camporee." Restaurants and a Food Lion grocery are located approx. 2-3 miles from camp. The James River is less than one mile south of the reservation. Located at N37.677, W-77.868.

Please join us! Fee to be set this week. It will be minimal.

Please consult our web page for more details. Feel free to contact me for more information.
