NAD 2007 - Problem was, we were snookered. We got one hour of solar gazing on the deck, the rest was rained out. Several rain showers busted the nighttime event too, although BOB HOYLE did his amphitheatre program in the auditorium. Attending & making the effort were: BOB, MEL, WALT, ARLO & DALIA, BILL B., JOHN F., & ED. Total visitors this year was about 150. After his amp program, the sky cleared a little & briefly. BOB did a quick laser sky tour for about 15 people & WALT got the club's 8 in. out for about 20 min. of stargazing. Hardly worth the effort, but they liked it & after all, that's what we do.
