NO Astronomical Observing at Fishcreek - Friday 6/06/2008

Regardless of weather, we will NOT be meeting behind Fishcreek Elementary School tonight due to prior commitments by all the telescope owner/operators you've come to know.  Most of us are heavily involved with the ACA (Astronomy Club of Akron, Inc) and are committed to setting up telescopes tonight for Camp CHOPS (Children's Hospital Oncology Patients & Staff).  This event at Camp Christopher is scheduled months ahead and we look forward to showing the campers the wonders of the universe.  However, if you're looking forward to doing some astronomical observing this weekend, let me heartily encourage you to come to the observatory owned and operated by the ACA.  The observatory is located in the Portage Lakes State Park at 5031 Manchester Rd, Akron, OH 44319.  Our program this Saturday 6/7/08 is our famous "Solar & Lunar Event / Hotdog Roast" and is always well attended.  Come and see the Sun through specially filtered telescopes while you're dining on a delicious charcoal-grilled hotdog.  What could be better than that!?

We will be restarting the Stow observing sessions on Friday 6/20/08, weather permitting, of course.
