Hi John,

There will also be a star party held Aug.5-6th at the same location. If you need more info, you can contact Lloyd Watkins at watkinslk at comcast dot net.

There will also be a star party held at Camp Nakanawa (Crossville, Tn) on Oct.7-9th. The star party is sponsored by the Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society.

Also, the Tennessee Spring Star Party will be held at Fall Creek Falls, Mar.31-Apr.2 2006. This star party free and open to all. The only costs involved are lodging and food, which participants are responsible for obtaining. There is lodging at the inn, offered at a very good price (50% off regular fees, IIRC). This star party is co-sponsored by the Cumberland Astronomical Society and the Astronomy in the Parks Society.

I hope this of some help,
