Ken, Mike, and Randy will each give an eye witness account of this year's Table Mountain Star Party from their different perspectives.

Randy Johnson helps with the amateur telescope makers contest, and Mike Morris represents the Squak Mountain Gang as a volunteer at Table Mountain. From children's events, the weather, swap meet super buys, food, awards, and night sky viewing, we'll get it all from Ken, Mike, and Randy.
