    Default Announcing Exclusive National Geographic Event, Feb. 19

    Hi folks,

    Besides the good news (and great relief) that the link to the summit is fixed, I also want to share this exciting news...

    On Thursday evening, February 19, we're presenting "An Evening with National Geographic Photojournalist Jose Azel" at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel in Bartlett, NH. Jose took hundreds and hundreds of photos for the article, and he'll present an incredible slideshow from that collection. He'll also give us a look behind the scenes at the making of National Geographic's article, "Backyard Arctic."

    Tickets are just $20 and all proceeds go to the Observatory, as we work to match a challenge grant for new exhibits. Only 600 tickets are available, and we expect that this thing will sell out, since it's smack in the middle of the Mass. school vacation week up here. The 143-room Grand Summit Hotel will be booked solid, so we expect to see many hotel guests at the event as well. So... if you're considering coming, book early.

    For all the details, including tickets, go to:
    http://observatory.mountwashington.o...tail&id=100081

    See you there!

    My timing is terrible! I head to NC on Feb 9th. Why do I need to be back in Maine 10 days later so I can go? Please, someone come up with an excuse for me.

    Now that is not bad. But, my wife will still be at the house and she can pull the red switch on the wall and turn it completely off.

    Another reason please.

    I thought you were referring to Tuckerman 6288 Stout. I may have that as well.

    Your webcams are actually security cameras for the Dept of Homeland Security and you need to be on site to ensure they are broadcasting between these dates. Why those dates? Well, if you had to tell them, you'd have to kill them!

    I think we all just need to sign up for this event and go. I would love to see a more complete set of pictures that were taken.
