Was cruising the InterNet today and found the following information at
>Observing June 27- July 3 (North Carolina) The Mid-Atlantic Star Party will
>be held at Boy Scout Camp Reeves located South of Robbins, in the heart of
>NC. There will be guest speakers, a swap meet (astronomy flea market),
>commercial vendors, contests, side trips and six nights of star gazing! This
>site can tent camp thousands, will permit motor homes at the observing site
>and there is lodging nearby in Southern Pines, Asheboro and Sanford. A formal
>program and swap meet are scheduled for Saturday followed by an awards

>for those who must depart in the dark.
>Early registrations will be rewarded.
>During April, every 10th registration fee will be refunded.
