The 50th BAA Winchester Weekend - 1st to 3rd April 2016

A total of 10 members of CMHASD attended the 50th BAA Winchester Weekend meeting this year & members enjoyed a weekend of good food, company, lectures and some solar observing.

John Mason had members in stitches on Saturday afternoon reminiscing about Winchester - the early years. During his talk he spoke of Newbury and Crayford's partying antics :-) he also spoke about John Wall and the huge refractor's he used to build in his garden.

Below are some photos from the weekend.

Thank you to members Diane Clarke, John Sowle, Jim Burchell & Honor Wheeler for taking the photos.
