Details to follow soon.

I know a cookout is planned and a lot of looking into the sky! Haha.

Something that only comes around one or twice in a lifetime.

Randy,

Thanks for initiating this tread.

At the recent MM meeting, I recall someone volunteered to host this who had a fabulous treeless hill that is in the path of eclipse.    8)  Can you include this soon in this thread, or as this is apparently now an open forum, perhaps you do not want to include this  info here.  If this is the case, please send me a note with the relevant info.  This eclipse is a big deal and we are currently making plans.

Hi John

Yes, we announced this at the meeting for our club members.  We are hoping that Michael Oh, our Activities Director, will be back in town soon so he can make all the detail arrangements with Lee and Barb, but will have details out to everyone as soon as we can.  This is a private Mountain Miatas party, so our preference is to use this forum and email for notifications, rather than anything more public.

We have over a month before the big event.  So we will have the details out to our members as soon as possible,

Poor Michael Ohl !!  He's been out of the country for a few months and I forgot the L on the end of his name.  I'm hoping he'll forgive me because I'm dropping off boxes of stuff for the club at his house tomorrow...  I really want him to keep these boxes so I can have my floor space back in my den :-)

Super excited about the TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!! Would like to attend if it looks like weather will cooperate for it in Madisonville. In case some haven't seen it & are interested, I've attached a NASA map of the eclipse path through TN. ~ Candice

Msg from Monroe County TN:

There will be an eclipse covering all of Monroe County on Monday, August 21st. You can anticipate a large number of visitors to our area. It is suggested that you prepare for this event in the same manner that you would for a large snowfall. You can expect there to be a shortage on groceries and fuel during this time. Monroe County 911 suggests you should fuel your vehicles and have essentials at home by the Friday before the event.
