Many thanks to all of you who have contacted me by e:mail and in person to say you would like to take part in a Moon Watch event for the National Trust’s Waddesdon Manor on October 4th. For those who aren’t sure what its all about, Waddesdon are selling tickets to the public for an event where ticket holders will arrive at 6.00pm for a 2 course meal followed by a talk on the moon in the Power House by our Sandy Giles and afterwards observe on the Parterre with our members and their scopes.
We will need to arrive between 5 and 6 pm to get set up and Waddesdon will serve us a buffet of soup, sandwiches and cake prior to the visitors reaching us.
I will need to confirm the final list of our members coming a week before the event so that Waddesdon can ensure our members are allowed up to the main house to park and so the Chef knows how many to cater for. I have got a list of those who expect to come but there have been some who have had to drop out and others who are still not sure. Please can all of you who are definitely coming e:mail me by the 25th September so I can make up the definitive list.
For those without badges and who need a map of Waddesdon showing where you need to park - they will be available on the signing in desk at the Lecture meeting on the 17th September.
I’m going to be away from the 9th to the 19th September hence this early e:mail.
I’m sure all those of you who came last time will confirm its a very enjoyable evening in wonderful surroundings.
