CIAS Dates for your Diary May

Hi All

Tuesday 19th May
The next General Public meeting will be next Tuesday  19th May At Pedro’s Castle starting at 7:30 PM
Please dim your lights on arrival. Last month  we had a fantastic turn out but too many cars, so I will now request that  from now on visitors park outside and walk in.
This also removes the issue of car head lights- which used to dazzle observers on entry.
As usual the  evening will be canceled if there is any rain or the sky is more than 50 percent cloudy. Please ring me (NOT TXT) to confirm at around 7 PM
(Phone 925 7657)
