2011 Kick Off

Here's the new SUG outreach for 2011! This Meetup group is for adults of all ages, those hidden astrofiles in my area. I met so many who want to learn so now here's the chance! I will cut back on my street astro for 3 months and see how this goes. You can view the page at and just link over to the Reno site.

My goal is to invest in a folks who want to learn how to observe the sky. I will have a casual and fun approach because that is who I am. Many folks here use the Meetup as a way to network, meet, and be active with others with similar interests. I joined one of the hiking groups and have had a good time with it. Many here are outdoors oriented so I am expecting some to join in. I will try to contain my enthusiasm and excitement and I will not overwhelm anyone! PROMISE!!!!!!!

I will post my activities here along with the people and their stories I am expecting some good stories of discovery and fun.

By the way here's a little leftover from breakfast the other day with Tom and it was good but the leftovers where better! He is very supportive of this new effort and we drove around town investigating 2011 Street Astro sites. Thanks Tom for your support and kindness! He also ordered some new things for next years observing times - yes with SUG's coaching!!!!!

This meet up group idea sounds wonderful! I wish I was there. By any chance, are you planning on moving to CT anytime soon??? LOL. I can't wait for you to tell us all about it! The leftover breakfast looks yummy!!!

You and Paulie will be the first ones to know if I get my telescope. I've been a very good girl this year...I've been a very good girl this year...:)

I love the idea of a Meetup group. I will probably star one of my own soon, and see how it goes. I know you are probably asked all the time, "When will you be out again?" This seems like one of the best ways to get that word out. I tend to be spontaneous, and the weather is always an uncertainty, so this may or may not be a good outlet for me, but I think it's worth a try. I will be following along in your group, too, offering support whenever I can.

I think you should start your own Meetup group too! :)

And as for you SUG, I am officially a member of your meetup group. Like Paulie, I will be following along in your group too.

And Paulie, when you get yours up and running, I will be following yours as well. Heck, maybe one day I'll have my own Meetup Group too...who knows? :)
