Nineteenth Annual Star Party

The 2021 nineteenth annual GLSG Star Party is scheduled to be held Thursday, September 9th through Sunday, September 12th, 2021. The plan is to have as many of our usual activities as possible. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans may have to be changed as necessary. If we are able to be inside, talks will be hosted down in the campground in the club room. Otherwise, talks will be postponed until next year. We will keep you updated on any developments and when registration will open. We hope to see you all this September for a few nights under the stars. In the meantime, stay safe and keep looking up!

Mail in registration is closed. You can just register at the welcome tent once you arrive. Looking forward to seeing you!
