You've done a good job with this. One correctoion and one suggestion though. 
On the listing for Arizona City, yu mention that SAC arranges both organized 
events there. We actually only arrange the Messier Marathon. The All Arizona 
Star PArty is arranged by EVAC.

Also I'd like to see geographical coordinates and elevations listed for the 
sites. Those of us with GPS recievers can make use of this to find the site 
and acurately set up computer controlled scopes. 

On another related topic, I seem to recall Wil was thinking of amassing and 
releasing a list of GPS coordinates forn AZ observing sites. Wil, have you 
made any progress on this?
