The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival Astronomy Outreach
Members of the Mid-Hudson Astronomical Association will be conducting an Astronomy outreach at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. Meetup members with telescopes are invited to join them. The list of activities includes solar observation. Participants and their significant others will receive a full day pass to the festival and be allowed to spend the night camping in the High Meadow or stay in the area designated for RVs if they wish to do so. They will also have plenty of time to enjoy themselves at a well run award winning gathering. The music at Grey Fox is not strictly bluegrass. It tends to be jam centric and has a very broad appeal. There are showers available as well as access to electricity. Thousands of people of all ages from all over the world attend the festival annually. We will be providing hundreds of people with the opportunity to take their first look through a telescope. The dates of the festival are July 19th through the 22nd although not much takes place on the 22nd. The number of passes available is limited. Anyone interested in taking part in this event should contact Paul Granich at [masked] as soon as possible to get answers to their questions and let him know which days they will be there. Multiple days aren't a problem. You can learn more about the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival at http://www.greyfoxbluegrass.com/ws/pages/home.php.
