Star parties aren't for wimps.
Starfest, which is coming up this next weekend is such an event.
Now what exactly do I mean?
Well, it's simple. It means' that when 11pm or midnite or whatever your regular bedtime is rolls around,
you don't go to bed yawn, and fall asleep with the notion that you'll get up at 2am "and see if it's clear".
Heck, if you haven't even set your alarm clock , how is that gonna happen any howz?
How come I hear a whole lot of snoring every year around 11pm at Starfest?
It's enough to keep you awake all night!
Granted, as we get older, it's tougher to do those long nights, but you only live once.

Francois van Heerden, an amateur astronomer from Barrie, always has a crowd around his Mallincam
tent, where he demonstrates the wonders of this remarkable system and explains how it all works.
Glenn Norman, from Mount Forest (how convenient), just wrote a most interesting review on the Mallincam
Universe in the current issue of Sky News magazine, which by the way, you can pick up free of charge
at the Sky News booth at Starfest.
And say Hi to Sky News publisher Greg Kielty, and shake hands with the one and only Terence Dickinson
noted author, and esteemed editor of the publication.
You just never know who else you are going to bump into in the night.
