    The error on the location was all on me, sorry about that.  We had 213 people look at Jupiter and Saturn through the telescopes in front of the water park.  Thanks to Mike, Scott, and Ken for helping out!

    The website for the north east ymca does not have an announcement that I can see. They close at 7 and sunset is after 9. Do you expect a crowd from Norton Commons?

    Thanks for your post. Yes, as you know from our conversation last night, Frank put the wrong YMCA in his post requesting scopes. It is the Northeast YMCA, not the Oldham YMCA. It is from 7-10 PM tonight.

    I called our official scheduler John Turack last night and made him aware of the error. This points out two things...everyone needs to go through John, IN WRITING, by email to jturack@gmail.com, no verbals, so Warren can post requests if an RSVP is needed AND postings have to be accurate.

    We appreciate you following up on this and pointing out the error. Frank sends his apologies.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the info. I will pass it along to the scheduler.

    This event is scheduled tomorrow, June 30, at 7:00 pm. I was in the area and thought I would check it out. The Oldham County YMCA knows nothing about us coming there tomorrow night. They have no plans for us being out there.  And tomorrow night, they close at 7;00 pm. This is posted on our list of events on our  home page and also E-mails were sent out. Did we make a mistake? They even checked other YMCA locations, but nothing.
