It's happening, the 16th annual fall gathering of the tribes. High levels of fun and low banter.

i just spent 20 minutes poking at WordPress (what that new CalStar site is built with), and I can edit every other page, but couldn't figure out how to edit the home page :-/

Sorry, I only just saw this thread now...but yes, the CalStar date is now posted thanks to John.

I'm going to take a page from DDK's playbook and cross-post the CalStar website to a couple of the other message boards here.

So ... WHERE is it going to be is my question.   LSA I have heard has closed for lack of water.
Please tell me I'm wrong.
Let me roam the deep skies and I'll be content.

Marko,

There was a thread over on the Annual Star Parties section that talked about how Charlie Wicks is investigating an alternate site.

http://observers.org/index.php/topic,386.0.html

Not sure what the outcome of the research that has been done.  There will be a need to arrange insurance and services for some sites.  Hopefully it will be sorted soon.

You can calm down, Stephen ole buddy, it's all in the works. CalStar XVI is happening.
As an old waiter will tell you, nothing happens instantaneously. But reliable people are at work.

That's awesome.  Lots of people were talking about the situation at GSSP.  Good to know that all is going to work out.
