Astronomy Night - 8th August, 2016

posted 1 Aug 2016, 18:33 by Epping Cubs   [ updated 5 Aug 2016, 05:33 ]
The night's Cub activities will be in normal hall (North Epping) if weather is unsuitable for astro activities. Baloo will send out an e-mail late Monday afternoon (between 5:00 and 5:30).  This will state if the astronomy activity is on or if we are to meet at the hall due to unsuitable weather. Only come to Albuera Rd if the e-mail says it is still on. Go straight down the driveway to meet at the back of the house.  Refer to the E1 for the full address.
Note the earlier start time of 6:30 p.m. This is to allow viewing of some objects which will be setting in the western sky early in the evening. Cubs who arrive at the "standard" start time of 7:00 p.m. will, of course, be able to join in from that point.
If due to bad weather we meet at North Epping hall, the start time will be 7:00 p.m. (19:00) as normal.
Should the weather be unsuitable, we will try again for the same activities one week later.
Wear uniform with suitable warmth for evening & sturdy shoes.
Parents, guardians & parent/guardian accompanied siblings are welcome to join in & see some of the wonders of the sky! However, they must inform a Leader if, for some reason, they and their Cub are withdrawing from an organised activity.
Bring torch (optional).
During the evening, Cubs will also be doing some activities under leader supervision in the nearby Forest Park and will walk via the footpath / footbridge between venues (also under supervision).
After the official close of the evening at 20:30, if the weather is suitable there may be an opportunity for more telescope viewing of objects requiring a darker sky. However, this would ONLY be available for Cubs being supervised by their parent / guardian, for supervision and safety reasons. Remaining Cubs without supervising parents or guardians would NOT be allowed to participate in this extended activity.

Please complete an E1 for every person participating in this activity, bring them along on the night and give them to one of the leaders.
