    It was not Nick and Judy's fault, they gave it their best. Thanks for all of your efforts. The weather was okay during the day, but unfortunately the clouds covered the stars and the rain was only good for putting me to sleep through the night.

    Will be good to see old friends both on the ground and in the night sky. I will be camping in the south end of the campground as I am inviting members of the Meetup group Southern Alberta Getaway group and will be introducing via other astronomers to the wonders of the night sky
