Volunteers needed - Burntisland Primary School Visit.

Postby justanotherpete » 12 Mar 2015, 18:36

Looking for three volunteers with telescopes ( I will be the 4th telescope) willing to help out at a visit to Burntisland Primary school (the new school). The proposed date for this is Thursday 26th March between 19:00 and 20:00 - 20:30.
The general idea is to repeat last year's visit with someone giving a talk while the 4 telescopes are set up on various (different) targets, when the talk is finished the children / parents / teachers come outside to look through the telescopes.
The date is subject to confirmation, and as always the weather.
Please let me know (either by responding below or message me) if you'd be able to help out.
Thanks Pete

Hullo Pete

Can't offer a scope,. but a certain pair of binos...

Plus a pair of hands for shifting stuff (as long as not heavy...), setting up any tables etc or other displays/posters, leaflets, general stuff, bringing astro mags, etc.

(Also have DS Certification if any "legals" cover/presence required for Club Members on their premises).

Please all note that I'm still waiting on confirmation of the 26th March back from the school;
and thanks for volunteering Geoff, that's 3 scopes, one more would be ideal as the attendance was quite high last year :)

Hi Jim,

That'd be great.
At the moment I'm still waiting on confirmation back from the school.
If I haven't heard anything by Tuesday evening, I'll have to pull the plug on it, hopefully we can re-arrange in the autumn once the clocks have reverted.
Please keep an eye on this page if you are not going to the meeting on Tuesday.
Thanks
Pete

Thanks all for volunteering, we are NOT going on Thursday 26th.

However I have had contact from the school this morning and we may be looking at a visit in April or failing that the Autumn.

Please watch this thread for further developments.

Pete
