I invite all of you to join me and fellow Observatory members, fans, family and friends on Saturday, June 4 for a celebration of OUR Mount Washington Observatory!

The 2011 Mount Washington Observatory Annual Gathering will be held at the beautiful White Mountain Hotel in North Conway, New Hampshire, offering the opportunity to meet fellow Mount Washington enthusiasts and get an inside look at the Observatory today--while enjoying great food and spectacular views, of course.

The evening gathering will be complemented by a variety of free activities throughout the weekend to help you reconnect with the Observatory and Mount Washington, and I encourage you to make a weekend of it with discounted lodging at the White Mountain Hotel.

Tickets to the 2011 Annual Gathering are on sale through May 23 online and by phone at (603) 356-2137, x230. And of course, the 2011 Annual Members? Meeting before the gathering is free and open to all. More information is available on the Annual Gathering website:

I hope you can join us!
