Title: Yosemite club weekends this year...
Post by: John Pierce on June 12, 2017, 05:52:45 PM
heads up, all you folks who join various astronomy clubs Glacier Point weekends.   The Bridalveil Creek Campground where they normally bunk 'us' won't open until August ....  and they aren't doing what they did in 2005, which was to put us at Badger Pass in an overflow parking lot, so my club, who has next weekend, is scrambling to find alternatives... EVERYTHING is booked solid except some $$$$ B&B kinda places in Oakhurst or Coarsegold (2 hours+ from Glacier Pt, ugh!)

and in fact, after spending 2 days trying to find a group site or any campsite  within 2 hours drive of Glacier Point, the Santa Cruz Astronomy Club is canceling our appearance there.  I suspect we won't be the only ones this summer.
