Update 5/5/2015 KD
Our 1st Kunkle Star Party will be held Saturday night, May 23. This is a Wagman and Mingo star party night as well, but we could use your help if you’re interested in coming.

Kunkle Park is located behind the Washington Township Municipal Building, in northern Westmoreland County. For GPS users, that’s 285 Pine Run Church Road, Apollo, PA 15613. (Near the State Police barracks on Route 66.) GPS users can also insert the following coordinates: 40 degrees, 32.92 minutes north latitude, 79 degrees, 36.26 minutes west longitude.

Please let me know if you’re able to attend.

Thanks a million.


PS. It looks as if I will be interviewed about the star party on the Saturday Light Brigade that morning. http:/ /slbradio.org/listen I’ll try to plug Mingo and Wagman as well.
