2018 MAS Campout Canceled
Sadly, the campout this year which was scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 14-16, in Hiles, WI has had to be canceled. It is too late to reschedule the event so we will wait until next year. 

Summer Work Parties
With the good weather, we will need as much help as possible for the Observatory projects. At the top of the agenda is putting in a new floor in the A-Dome. Look for announcements on the web calendar and on the Google Group.
