Observing Weekend September 2018
WDAS have an observing session planned for Friday 14 to Sunday 16 September 2018 on Anglesey.
Contact Jason or Zeinth for further details, via the email "observing.officer" at wdas2.com and we will explain more during the July and September Society meetings.
Please bring your non-refundable deposit of £20 to secure a place for the weekend to either the July or September meeting (or coordinate with Jason or Zeinth to make a payment).
The location is used be other Astronomical Societies so hopefully, we will get some good dark skies and no clouds.
Information for the Observing Weekend trip Booked for 14-16 September 2018.
Anglesey will be our main centre for the weekend, for observing and for communal meals. Accommodation for up to 16 (usually 2 per room, though some rooms sleep more) but we need numbers to confirm the room allocation. Bring your own sleeping bags!
Anglesey is used by several Astronomical societies because of its sky, so hopefully, it will be good.
We need those wishing to attend to pay a £20 non-refundable deposit to secure the location. The total cost per person for the weekend is usually £35-50 depending on drinks, breakfast, lunches, and dinner including the Guide house accommodation from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.
There are some alternatives locally - pub/B&Bs - but we still need the contribution to the Guide house and the grounds.
Siop y Rhos Farmhouse Staying in Angelsey about 200m from Guide House on a bed and breakfast basis. We think this is £70 per night for a twin room.
Another alternative for bed and breakfast is Ty Ddrew pub which is about 2 miles away.
If its cloudy, bring your favourite party game.
