   Not being a member of the SAC board I want to give some input to this 
thread. Some other members and myself have been trying to find a site 
for "local" star parties and have found it a difficult task. Steve's 
offer sounds like a good one and should be a good option for a local 
site. I have not been to SHO and would like to do so sometime soon. It 
sounds like there are many good points that have been asked so far. The 
one I would worry about is the impact on Steve and Rosie being invaded 
by 30 or more vehicles. This could get old real fast. Lets talk about it 
and I might have a attorney who would help us on a pro-bono basis. Of 
course being a non-profit organization it would be a tax write off for 
him. Can we explore it at the next meeting?
