WDAS AGM & Show & Tell



Observing


The annual field trip to Hardraw (a truly dark site) took place in January. As usual a good mix of observing (between the clouds), fine food (Zeneith), some drinking, games, walking and great company.


Other Events


A very enjoyable Christmas meal was held at the Mezzalona Restaurant in Chorlton in December.
