Canty Weather Watchers Meeting

Unread post by Skywatcher »

With all the recent thunderstorm activity in Canterbury it might be good to have another meeting to see the photos and watch the video footage.

I'd be happy to host it here and since Wednesday seems to be a good night how about either the 8th or 15th from about 7:30.

.... or is it too soon after the last one ?

Let me know if you think you'd attend and if you have a preferred night.

Cheers
Steven

Yes, I will be interested and possibly Bob Crowder as well.

Either date suits fine

I'm definetely interested, but can't make it if it's on the 15th - I'll be off to Central Otago to bike the rail trail (hoping for more settled weather than that of late). So I'd much prefer it on the 8th.

Looks like the 8th is the day, then.

Pity you can't make it, Steve. You could always come along after you finish work although you might not feel like it !

Bring along any photos or video footage you think might be interesting.

I'll send an email with map, address and phone info shortly.

It would be cool to have you along Tony at these things! I guess Amberley is a bit far away to travel though but if you can come, cool!

Can everybody else manage those nights ?

Yeah, no problems. Aslong as thunderstorms aren't happening I'll be there. Any night is cool with me. Not alot going on at the moment. :D

Steve B could also make it depending on what his roster is saying.

Edited: 10:01am

Actually if thunderstorms are happening I probably will be there. You've got a good vantage point from where you are! Nothing like enjoying thunderstorms with others who have a similar interest aswell!

Tuesday or Thursday this coming week is fine but the week after the Tuesday is out.
It would be good to have Tony there plus Bob Crowder/Clarry possibly?

Probably wouldn't have arranged a meeting as soon if we hadn't had the three storms so early in the season.

I assume you still can't make either Tuesday or Thursday :(

Ben, Jason, would Thursday be OK for you ?

There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.

It was a great evening. Thanks again to Steven for providing the venue (and the technology), and to the others who brought the spectacular video footage of storms.
