We a trying to get our Scouts excited about science. So, we are working on the Astronomy Merit Badge. We are camping at Tolt-McDonald County Park January 25th. We were wondering if we could have an astronomy expert come out and teach us. We have two nice scopes and a few binoculars. If you could make it, that would be wonderful. Thank you!

This event was COMPLETED as scheduled with approximately 20 11-14 year old male scouts and 5 fathers participating.
SAS members participating included D. Ingram and Doug Hoople.  Weather was good, but proximity to local river contributed to humidity/dew.  Seeing was steady and sky was clear.
