This is being offered by the MO Department of Conservation and I thought it would be a fun and different thing for us skeptics to do. We do have to make reservations so, if you are going to attend, please make your own reservation AND if it turns out you cannot make it, please contact the Department and let them know so they can open the slot up to someone else. My understanding is that this event is rain or shine so dress appropriately. We can always go grab a drink at Exit 6 afterwards to warm up/dry off. :) If anyone wants to carpool, we can meet at Exit 6 and consolidate. Post a reply if you want to carpool.
Reservation details are below.
