Telescope Workshop is from 3:30 to 5:30pm
Set up of the PAS Table and chairs provided by Bookmans
is at 2:45pm

Public attendees MUST RSVP with Terri to attend
Please Provide requested info:
1) Make and Model of the scope you need help with and are Bringing to this class
2) Number in your party - seating in this location is super limited as we are in the front window of the store - first to attend gets the chair
3) If you are seeking advice on what scope to purchase - mention that in your RSVP and also send me the data of #2 above.

This event happens with the exception of falling rain.
We can do a light drizzle, but if it is raining or predicted to rain at the beginning or end of the event, we will cancel this event. If you are unsure of the weather, by 11am the morning of the event, there should be an auto response set up in my email to let you know the weather situation. Drop me an email to find out. If i don't have the Auto response set up by the time you message me, i will reply to your email.

These attendees want help with their scopes:
The above telescope teachers could assist these folk.

Reminder to the Telescope Teachers: I pull up a photo of the scope that the student of this Telescope Workshop needs help with based on the info they provide when they RSVP for the event. This is to help my Telescope Teachers know which scope they may wish to assist at this event. It may not be the exact scope the student owns. The mount could be different or if the scope is older, it may be that a photo of that scope is no longer availble on the internet.
