Yasu & Yumi Inugi and Mark Deprest attended this event during the first week in July, and although the weather did not co-operate for observing the event itself was a lot of fun.

The organizers, planned out ever waking minute with activities for everyone, and if you weren’t into the activities and talks, you could always go site-seeing in one of the most picturesque areas in the country. I have many pictures of this trip and if you come to the next club meeting I might be persuaded to share them with you.

Yasu and Yumi seem to have good time and enjoyed many of the activities and played a little golf while out there. Rain and night fog put a damper on the most observing, but Wednesday night we did get in some, under very dark skies.
