August 9th, 2019 – CAS picnic

CAS Members enjoy the annual picnic!

Please join us for out annual picnic out

Nothing feels more like summer than a good picnic and fireworks. We hope to have both at our annual August picnic meeting. The picnic will feature BBQ and sides from City Barbeque. Members are also encouraged to bring a dish to share- vegetable dishes for our vegetarians, traditional and nontraditional sides and desserts are all desired. Hopefully we will have clear skies, but if not we will take shelter inside Perkins Observatory to enjoy our feast. We will begin to set up at 4 pm and begin eating by 6 pm. We will also attempt to take our annual group photograph, so start practicing your smiles now!

            If you are wondering about the promise of fireworks, those will come later, after dark. Our picnic will fall near the beginning of the annual Perseids meteor shower.  Although a bright Moon will wash out many of the meteors, the brightest will still be impressive. So bring a camp chair, bug spray, some food to share, and an appetite. Hope to see you at the picnic!
