The Name field should contain the name of the primary contact for your party and that person should be an HAA member. This event is for HAA members and their immediate family only.

If you will be bringing a cell phone while you attend the Star Party, it might be handy for the organizers to be able to contact you on your phone.
All attendees will be accessing private property owned by Dave Skelton, our host.
All attendees must be self-contained as there are no picnic tables, no shelters, no potable water, no electrical, no sewer services or dump station on site.
Further that all garbage and debris must be removed by me upon departure.

The HAA Dark Sky Star Party is a weekend overnight camping event due to the distance from Hamilton. Therefore, it is not suited to a day trip.
