We’ve also reserved three lanes at Grandview Lanes Bowling for 8, so well head over there over dinner for a couple of games of glow-in-the-dark bowling.

The moon is almost full on Friday this week, so we won’t be able to see as much as we’d like to at our Dark Sky Night.
We’d like to hold the event during an (almost) new moon, so we’re pushing it back by two weeks.
The new night is Friday, Mar. 8th. We’ll still meet at Mcdonald Park at 8pm.
Please contact the club if you’re interested in going, and indicate whether or not you can drive, so that we can arrange rides for everyone.
We’ve got quite a few events coming up over the next couple of weeks. Here’s a quick breakdown.
1. Star Party (Day Unknown)
Most forecasts call for some sun and clear skies at some point this week, which means we’ll be out stargazing. We’ll send out a message/email on the day that we go, so be prepared and check often.
2. Nerd Love (Feb. 15th, 8 til late)
This five club collaborative Valentine’s Dance is sure to be one of the biggest parties of the year. Tickets will not be sold at the door, so make sure you sing by Ladha between 11 and 2 Tuesday or Wednesday to get tickets.
For more info, check out: Facebook Event
3. Seattle Trip (Feb. 16th-17th)
Our friends in the Aviation Club have invited us on their annual Seattle Trip, featuring a tour of a Boeing factory, a tour of the Museum of Aviation and Spacecraft, and some time to explore downtown Seattle. Accommodations and transport will be provided.

4. Dark Sky Night (Feb 22nd)
The Club will be headed out to Macdonald Park in Abbotsford, which is the Fraser Valley’s only designated Dark Sky zone. More info to come, but those with their own equipment are highly encouraged to bring it out.
Also, can anyone with a car who’s available that night, please contact the club (email@example.com) so we can arrange rides for everyone.
Be sure to check email or the facebook group often for more info when it becomes available.
