Star Party - Frisco Commons Park

Don D, our resident star gazing authority, has agreed to sponsor our group again this month at the Frisco Star Party.

There are restrooms at this location.

If you have a scope bring it out.

If it's cold out be sure to dress warmly as it can get very cold when you are just standing around on cold pavement. Good shoes, a hat, ear coverings, and layers are your best bet. You can always take off what's not needed.

(BTW this is only a stargazing party - no food or drink required. :)

More details, including directions to the Park, are available at:
Frisco Star Party

The site gives directions from Preston, from the Tollway you turn right on Main (FM 720) and go for about 1.5 miles through Old Frisco, past the old watertower to Meadow Lane on the left. A median prevents you from turning left directly onto Meadow, so you can take the next left into the parking lot of Liberty Baptist Church and go back to Meadow.

On this map of the park we will be in the area at the bottom:

NOTE: If it is overcast or the weather is severe the event will be canceled. You can check the TAS website.

    A couple of my guests desire to know if alcoholic beverages may be consumed there.

      I should be able to do something. I have a CPC 800 (fork mount) and there is another person with a C11 GEM who has been a pretty regular attendee.
