Solar Observing Dunfermline High School

Postby Cosmic » 03 Jun 2009, 23:12

Ok So this has been confirmed today for Mon 22nd June at Dunfermline High School all day from 10.30 A.M.
I would like to have a meeting with the  DHS Astronomy Club Tutor and we have dates of this Friday or next Monday. I would like it if some committee members could make either of these days and accompany me to the School for a prelim meeting and site survey. Sola B can you make it too?

I will be contacting the media and local radio to see if we can get some coverage. I would also like a list of volunteers who could possibly spare a few hours throughout the day to help at the school. We will be visited by all the 7 classes from St Leonards P.S. so this will be a big event. This a real opportunity to get the club known so please get behind it. Any help on the day will be appreciated from any member.

Please leave your availabilty and poss times to cover here and I will compile a timesheet and dish out duties.

Cheers

I won't be able to help out with time as I have to be at work that day but I can help out with equipment if needed.

Solar day

Pete
That would be fantastic could you liaise with Solar B and see what we need off you as obviously the more scopes the better.
By the way, thanks for quick response. I contacted STV last night so let's see if they will come, also Scottish Government to see if they will send anyone, again let's see.
cheers

Gazebo

Postby pbholmes » 06 Jun 2009, 10:17

Hi Cosmic,

Excellent news.
I've got a gazebo, but no generator, unfortunately.

What time would the meeting be this Monday? Any time after about 5.30pm would be OK.

As for the 22nd, I'll try and get the day off.

Paul.
