....I'm also a little sad that the worlds largest tarp has been called home to it's final resting place. But the gazeebo looks almost as sturdy.

If all works out, I'm going to do my best to make it there Friday night and Saturday night. Heck, it can't POSSIBLY rain as much as the last one......can it?

LOL yes almost as sturdy as the Super Tarp... but not quite as large! And now that we have the Grand Gazebo you know that is our insurance that it will not rain a drop this time!

And if we have a clear sky on Saturday night, we can drive over to the NJAA.ORG observatory at Voorhees State Park for their Open House from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm Saturday night.

I have invited a few other friends that will be attending the weekend - some are confirmed and some are still maybes for now.

Does anyone know if the little tower in the video is open? Be a great place to set up tripods for beamshots for the big throwers. :thumbsup:
