Event description

Description

This event registration is ONLY FOR VOLUNTEER ASTRONOMERS who are participating in the Spring Kouchibouguac Star Party. Visitors among the general public are welcome and encouraged to join us, but they must book their own campsites with the park if they wish to stay overnight.

Please be aware that the park will be undertaking construction work at the campground this spring, so there's a chance that the campground will not be open in time for the star party. There's therefore a chance that the observing location will be changed to another area of the park (either La Source or Côte à Fabien). Please plan accordingly. We'll send updates to all event registrees as soon as we learn more about the situation.

Free campsites are available for astronomers who are volunteering with a telescope or binoculars. Volunteering means that you already know how to set-up and operate your equipment, and that you can find celestial objects on your own. Volunteering also means that you're sharing the views with the general public at the observing field during the appointed time.

Due to the limited number of campsites, you may be asked to share your campsite with other astronomers and their family/party.

We reserve the right to limit the number of spots that go out to astronomers who are not members of RASC New Brunswick. If we run of out of campsites, you can still book your own (at your expense) and join us at the observing field.

RASC members who intend to operate a green laser pointer are required to fill and submit this registration form.
