NO Astronomical Observing at Fishcreek - Friday 8/13/2010
Changed location & date confirmed on 1/27/2010 via call from Children's Hospital

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 WUNDERLUNG (Children's Hospital patients with severe breathing disorders).
This event (this year at Camp Y-Noah) is scheduled months ahead and we look forward to showing the campers the wonders of the universe.

Camp Y-Noah is located at 815 Mount Pleasant Rd, Clinton, OH 44216.
