We ask participants to bring any suitable food/etc for the buffet (similar to Xmas Benker night) and possibly barbeque.

  • Venue: Will take place at at  our Observatory and base of operations the Washington Wetlands Centre.

The event is free to attend (members,  invited guests & the public) though you will need to supply your own barbeque goodies (for e,g, food, disposable barbies, etc), scopes, etc.

There is usually lots of scopes of all shapes and sizes at this event, so if you are a prospective/new member that’s no problemo.
