WDAS AGM & Show & Tell





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 a Spanish Tapas Resturant in Didsbury in December.
