Meade would love the OCA to be a part of this by having a presence at H.O.T.S on Fri. and Sat. We can bring our own Solar scopes, help Meade with theirs (this is not required) or just have booth set up there with our brochures and club business cards. If we have a presence we can attend the lectures without any problems. Please contact Craig Bobchin @ ETX_Astro_Boy@SBCglobal.net if you would like to participate.
