Feb 4 2018 Free Bookmans Telescope Workshop 3:30 to 5:30pm

Feb 4 2018 Free Bookmans Telescope Workshop 3:30 to 5:30pm

This event was cancelled due to lack of Telescope Teachers attending the event.

An Awesome afternoon to everyone!
This link:
takes you to the event details about an awesome chance to learn to use your telescope, for FREE!

Our experienced Telescope Teachers are eager to help you assemble, align, learn about and then enjoy your telescope. Why leave your telescope sitting in the closet collecting dust when you can take it out, enjoy a view with the help of PAS at a Free Telescope Workshop, and Wow your friends with what you have found, on your own, in the night sky.

Would love to help you. Sign up today to attend.

We have 2 kinds of Telescope Workshops in a month...

1) Pvcc Telescope Workshops are held on one Thursday of the Month, during School months, and they are set up so that you start indoors with your telescope, assemble it, talk about various facets of your telescope, how they work, talk about eyepieces, etc... then, take the whole telescope outdoors and find your first object in the night sky with the help of the telescope teacher. This event is dependent on 2 things:
1) Weather has to be cooperative
2) There has to be at least one Telescope Teacher and one attending RSVP to keep this event happening.

2) Bookmans Telescope Workshops are held on one Sunday / month, even if there is no school that month, and they are indoors only. The advantage to this is that you don't have to keep an eye on the weather. Unless it is falling a hard rain, or blowing strong winds, the event will happen because it is indoors. The only thing that cancels this event is:
1) Harsh weather, such as mentioned in this paragraph
2) Lack of Teacher attendance. As long as one teacher will attend, the event goes on.

Always RSVP with the Make and Model of the telescope you wish to get assistance on, and let me know how many people are in your party.
The bookmans event has limited seating.
The PVCC event can seat up to 20 RSVP's.
But, neither event happens if there are no telescope teachers attending.

Wishing eveyrone a super day!
