This is a Public star party and Fireworks party.
RSVP is directly with Mike at
or call 480 488 3031. Leave a message
and please RSVP by the day before the event if you expect
Mike to give you directions to get to his home for this event.

For the potluck, bring a dish to share, preferably enough for everyone in your party plus one as if it was their only dinner that night. And bring a drink (non alcoholic) to share, again, enough for eveyrone in your party plus one. And bring a box of Popsicles or ice cream or other cold treat to share.

If you are not attending the potluck, please arrive by 8:30pm. The end of the driveway will be blocked with chairs for the group to gather to watch the fireworks at 9pm. Please do not arrive any later than 8;30 so that your vehicle can be parked in Mike's driveway before the fireworks begin. If you have to arrive after 8:30pm, please park in the Wash below Mike's house and walk up to the drive way where everyone will be watching the fireworks. Bring your own chair, if you arrive 8:30 or later.
Also please note that your headlights from your vehicle, if you arrive 9pm or later, will mess up the photography happening to capture the fireworks by photo. It is preferred you arrive earlier than 8:30pm.

Please park at the front of the house if you are not bringing a telescope for the star party.
Those bringing telescopes may park at the back of the house to aid in telescope set up and take down.

Hope to see you there.
