Howdy all;

For those of you who were not at the SAC meeting last night I have poor 
news.  It seems that the usual Fredericksen's Meadow observing site is 
no longer available to us.  The other part of the report was that there 
were people at the site to our south that were firing guns for hours at 
a time, then started a 20 foot tall bonfire.  We had several ideas about 
other spots to try and I do hope we can find a location in the cool 
pines to view the sky without trouble.

Well, it is about 6 PM and the Monsoons are upon us again.  I will try 
and get with the ranger startion at Happy Jack and see what can be done 
to provide us with a viewing location.  Because it has been raining 
quite a bit I am reluctant to drive out on any of the muddy roads in 
search of a new spot.

Take Care;
Steve Coe
