At the very end of July I had the pleasure of being a guest speaker at the 2011 Table Mountain Star Party. I had a wonderful time and met some really great folks. Table Mountain is a few hours east of Seattle, WA - what a beautiful location! The super steep, one lane, ragged dirt road did it's best to scare this city girl, but I was prepared with a rental car with high clearance! This was part of a series of talks being given this year by AAVSO staff  at star parties across the country to celebrate the AAVSO's centennial year.
Speaking of the centennial, don't forget to register for the AAVSO 100th Annual Meeting !!!
