The rain date will not be needed.

This is LVAAS' annual Members' Night and picnic. Please plan to bring a covered dish, snack, or dessert. LVAAS will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages.

Also, we will have our annual swap meet! Bring any astronomy-related goodies that you think someone else might enjoy having more than you do, and see if you can make a deal. You will need to bring your own display table.
