Hidden Villa Star B Que
Saturday August 2017, tbd
One Saturday evening in August of 2017 to be determined, the SMCAS will be at the Hidden Villa Farm in Los Altos Hills to hold a club Star B Que and public star party, starting at 6PM. We will begin the event with an outdoor Star B Que cookout at 6PM for club members and guests. The SMCAS will provide meat in the form of hamburgers, chicken burgers and veggie burgers. Hidden Villa will provide the BBQ facilities. Members who attend the event should bring a favorite potluck vegetable and/or dessert dish of their choice along with some soft drink or juice to round out the helpings.
Then, starting at 8PM, the public star party begins with a featured speaker or activity. At 9PM, we will begin the telescope viewing part of our public star party. We will need lots of telescopes along with all the owners who know how to use them and are willing and eager to share their knowledge and equipment with the public.
After the actual date is announced, please let me know how many plan to come so I can know how much supplies to bring. You may do so by sending me an email at: lum40 @ comcast.net or call me and leave a message at 1-650-508-1879.
