For goodness sake, of course it answers the question, if matters are in hand to deal with the eventuality then considering the event fails then obviously they will get a refund, we are not handling the financial side of things, the NP is, we just get a cut from the proceeds, so it isn't even our concern. As for traveling, any event of this nature has to be a bit of a gamble, no one can guarantee the weather, so people will either take a shot and turn up or they won't, it's not up to us to either decide or inform, all we had to do was say if we thought it would be good enough to go ahead, that has already been done, so all complete as far as the groups responsibility is concerned, the rest is up to the NP. You can pester them if you are inclined of course.
Pester, asking a question is not pestering, I am asking a question that has not been answered, I have told people from Swansea about it who have called ME today asking if it is till on, I have no answer for them.
I had no idea that the club was involved they can happily have all the money and more
I am simply saying I have a DISABLED son, Autistic, I was told by the "park" that people would be called "well in advance" if it was not on.
Not laying blame anywhere but we don't all live close.
Me I will be going, I believe in supporting all events, I just didn't want someone to come from Swansea if no one was there and wait in an empty car park
OK, that's fair. (and a bit clearer) You can consider it on as if it was going to be cancelled then we would have done that by now (our call based on the potential weather (clouds etc), as Richard has already given a "Looks promising" message, and it still looks likely to be OK then we will be going and setting up in the hope that the weather does hold good, so, you can tell your friends that it is a go, but no guarantee that the conditions will be perfect, though it looks more likely they will be OK than not. I wasn't really getting the gist of your previous posts, as such they seemed a bit odd, I hope this helps more in answering the question.

My sat-nav got me lost Jim SA715DZ did not exist in its brain so I opted for the nearest postcode and I ended up on Castlemarting ranges so had to rely on memory to get there, even after arriving I was not sure I was at the right place and had to ask! It was a nice evening out and a good spot for observing, even though there was a bit to much Moon and cloud for really good observing and a distinct lack of meteors with only a couple spotted all night, Kim showed us some galaxies Jupiter made an appearance so plenty to look at even with the cloud. Richard brought along the 10 inch Meade from Letterston and had it fired up and tracking. It was a shame there was not a very good public turnout probably due to the weather forecast and the £10 entry fee.
Glad you all got to see a little unlike here at home. not a single Lyrid just the 1st Quarter moon in the occasional gap in the clouds and only three, yes three stars visible N/E. The cloud did come and go a bit but I didn't unload the car although I have done since.
On the plus side my satnav seems to be working again and I had a good meal last night
At least those members of the public that did attend seemed to be suitably impressed in spite of the poor viewing. Maddening part was it cleared off quite a bit after they had all gone. Hopefully by the next event I will learn how to set up the Meade properly so it works as a go to scope
