Next Star Party

September 15th & 16th

Now that the Great American Total Solar eclipse is done, we'll be back to our regular star party schedule in September. As an added bonus, the stifling heat should be gone!

GMARS star parties start Friday afternoon/evening and wrap up on Sunday morning. Be sure to join us for the potluck Star-B-Q on Saturday afternoon (roughly 60-90 minutes before sun down). We provide the dogs, burgers and fixings. You provide a sidedish, dessert or beverages!
