    Default star party/event thread?



    I have been looking for info on star parties and astronomy events (e.g. NEAF) or where to post info on events. I suspect there may be some in the calendar but it is packed with birthdays, stops at Dec 2015 and does not appear to be searchable.

    Would it be possible to have a star party/astronomy event forum? Or a separate calendar? Someplace where they would all be in one spot.

    If a forum, I think it would work better if limited to event details and updates.

    thanks

    Since star parties are in specific locations, they tend to get posted in the appropriate area of the Regional forums. There are subforums for the USA and Canada, among others.
