    Navigation gathering: Mystic, Spring 2010
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2009 Aug 15, 11:52 -0700

    I am looking tentatively at organizing another biennial "Navigation Weekend" 
    at Mystic Seaport Museum (possibly some other location... options are still 
    open) in mid to late Spring of 2010. For those who are relatively new to 
    NavList, please visit fer3.com/Mystic2006 and fer3.com/Mystic2008 for 
    descriptions of events, presentations, and activities at those earlier 
    gatherings. As many of you know, Don Treworgy, recently retired Director of 
    the "Treworgy Planetarium (named for him just a few months ago), is very ill 
    so he will probably not be able to participate directly, but I'm sure he and 
    Mystic Seaport would support our activities if that's where we choose to 
    For something different this year, would some of you like to work on a "Build 
    your own Bygrave" workshop? And if not that, or maybe in addition, how about 
    a presentation on how to use a standard Bygrave (or Gary's flat Bygrave) to 
    solve celestial navigation problems?
    Any topics within the range of things that we discuss on NavList would be 
    welcome. Also, once we settle on dates and a location, I'm going to ask the 
    rest of you to help publicize this event and help bring in people who are not 
    part of our small community. Naturally, it's more interesting if we get a 
    broader group of people.
    As in 2008, there will probably be a small fee for attendance to the meeting 
    in 2010 to cover Mystic Seaport's overhead for the event.
