Cancelled – Great Meadow Public Night @ Great Meadow
Feb 18 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Cancelled - Great Meadow Public Night @ Great Meadow

I’m cancelling public night. Great Meadow fields are soft already. The melting snow will make it worse.

When using the dirt roads to access our site, remember to try not veer off, causing damage and widening of the roads. We are grateful to be guests at Great Meadow so please don’t damage the facilities.

I would suggest using the VRE garage again for the collimation workshop. We should be able to do star tests from the top level with non-artificial stars!

Great Meadow site coordinator
