    Jim, I am going but I am so new to meetup I don't know what an organizer does. If it would mostly be just to be sure at least one person is there... I can do that.

      Hi Joan. Yes, it is an open night by Veen itself so anyone can show up and look through all the telescopes at their own pace. What I did last time was mainly meet everyone at the parking lot area and we all went up ... and kind of went our own ways as you can really only view one person at a time anyway.

    I will not be able to make this event as I had mailed out to you all a few weeks ago. I have not heard from anyone, if anyone wanted to take the organizer role for this event but you are all welcome to go on your own to this event if the weather is good and Veen is open for the evening. Jim
