Mt. Mitchell Star Party this Saturday, September 15 CANCELLED

Body: 

from Bob Hampton, President of BRAG:
The Mt. Mitchell Star Party is officially canceled due to weather. I was ready to take a chance and set up anyway and see what happens, but the rangers needed a definite decision now, so word can get out before people drive a long distance to get there. It looks to me like the weather could go either way, but the rangers at Mt. Mitchell know the weather pattern up there much better than I do, and that weather can be extremely unpredictable and entirely different from the rest of the southeastern US. The rangers think it will be another washout, so we're canceling it now. 
Sorry for the confusion, and sorry this didn't work out. This party was a good idea, so we'll try it again someday, maybe next spring.

Thank you....
Bob
