Potential Daytime Outreach event for Girl Scout Day Camp


James Cantu
 

We have received a request for a daytime Outreach event for Girl Scout Day Camp. 
During the week of June 20th Blount County will host girl scouts in Alcoa for a day camp. Between 10a-12p one hour sessions will be reserved for special presentations. If we were to participate we could offer a short presentation followed by some daytime viewing of the moon or sunspots. If weather cooperates both would be ideal on the 20th. 

The trick is they will have 60-65 girls participating and it's a Monday. If a viewing activity were to occur we would want to have some scopes and operators available. At a minimum we would need three, but four may be better. I would be willing to take the morning off to participate, but I cannot that week. 

Do we have any interested and available participants? I would be willing to offer my Coronado PST H-alpha scope for the event. 
We would need to decide pretty soon, so please reply quickly if you are interested and available. I think this is a worthy event, and I hope we can get enough interest. 

Many thanks, 
James 


 

I would love to, but I have a dentist appointment in Sevierville that day.

I’m also not available on the week of 6/20. I have a club telescope at home; Celestron 6-inch SCT. If any member would like to use it in this outreach event, I’d be happy to meet you somewhere in Knoxville to hand over the telescope.

Now she wants Wednesday.
Exact address is 1537 Daulton St. Alcoa TN 37701
I have sent her a PM with my phone number and email suggesting she needs to call and not work asynchronously on Facebook 
Paul Luis has expressed interest but only in the form of asking questions.

It may only be me so far expressing interest.

The problem these days is that too many people – who know better – have now plugged their cerebral cortex directly into their GPS and have abandoned everything they ever knew about a map, compass, and orienteering.

 

Best regards,
