This year’s trip over to Westerdale (15th Sept) coincided with cloud and eventually rain, preventing any observations outside.  But as we know Esk Valley folk are a hardy breed, and in spite of the weather a good turnout gathered at the village hall.

Plan B was put into effect; ie the indoor show.  This was augmented by a look at the Cassini mission at Saturn, which ended that very day.  There were lots of questions, so i think people were interested, certainly the feedback was very positive.  I guess if plan A falls victim to the weather, a good plan B is the next best thing...and it’s always nice to meet up with our member, John Randles, who acted as MC for the duration.  Needless to say we have already been asked to pencil in a date next September.
