Stewart Melville observing evening
« on: October 08, 2014, 12:50:25 PM »
As sone of you will know,  last season a few members of the group helped with an observing event with psychics students from stewarts melville college which was a success.

I've had Fiona, one of teachers get in touch to ask of we could help out again on the 8th December so I thought I'd post to ask if anyone else would like to come with me to show the students our scopes, let them have a look & answer any question.

We will be going to yellowcraigs at the moment but that may change, will keep yiu informed. The gothenburg pub in prestonpans has been booked as a bad weather alternative so there is a back up just in cade.

cheers,

Thanks James, it would be great if yourself & Steve could make it again.

No problem Mike, there will be room for anyone so you can decide nearer the time.
