Scout Astronomy Night at Richmond Glider Airfield
October 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Jim Barnes has asked members to help with an Astronomy event for Pack 345 at Sandhill Soaring Club (i.e. Richmond Field) on Friday, October 25, 2019, for the purposes of having a Pack Meeting centered around aviation, star-gazing party and having a bonfire. The event would take place from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM; I expect a total of about 50-60 people to be in attendance.
Jim has asked for some volunteer assistance with pulling out a glider and towplane for the kids to sit in, and later helping me put them back in secure in the hangar.
The event will have a high degree of parental supervision, including Pack leadership, Den leadership, parents, Courtney and Chris Schrader – [the requestors], and likely several other SSC members.”
Just in case of bad weather Jim and Liam are considering some alternative activities.
This is also a great chance for the members to get to see the airfield as an astronomy observing site for the club members if you have not been there yet.
