Hi Robert and everyone:
I have had plenty of offline talking with folks who have gone there for years, and there most certainly will be juice on the field like at MASP. I misread the website sections which talked about it.
So I'm excited! Now I'm planning to send in my application for some mid-winter warm weather viewing. I was going to fly down but I think now I may drive and load up the pickup. I'm getting excited thinking about it, I hope I can get in.

Hmmm. Having just purchased my new telescope, I've searched for them on
Google and found the following picture:
Scroll down to the third picture (the one of the Mewlon 300 on the
beach) and note the orange extension cord at the bottom. Admittedly,
this is from 2006, and the owner could have a generator off the picture
that they are using, but it *appears* that they had electricity at one
time at the Winter Star Party.
What do you remember, Jayme or Walter?
