Pre-Order Meal Menu, & A New Catering Provider

First, we're sad to bid a fond farewell to Debbie Losse who, along with her staff, has been providing the meal catering to Table Mountain attendees for well over a decade. While we're sad to see her go, we wish her all the best in the future (and she's glad that she'll get a week away from Doyle in the bargain!).

We're happy to announce that Robin and her catering staff at the Eden Valley Lodge have stepped in to take over the meal catering service! They've put together a great new menu of offerings for us this year. Pre-order meals will be served buffet-style in the Eden Valley Lodge Dining Room, tables and chairs provided for your convenience. They will also be offering meal options for the younger eaters 12 and under. Please see the Food Services page for the menus, pricing and all the details.

We're also pleased that, with some arm-twisting and cajoling (and stern looks from Debbie for a week of peace) that Doyle will be returning to operate the Chuckwagon Grill as usual throughout the Star Party.


Student Telescope Making Program

For 2016, we have four kits to build a complete 6" f/8 Dobsonian telescope available. Details are on the Student Telescope Making Program Page.

Looking Ahead...

In anticipation of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse that takes place on Monday, August 21, 2017 which will be visible in the continental US, TMSPA has selected July 18-23, 2017 as the dates for the 2017 Table Mountain Star Party. This will give all of us the opportunity to witness this spectacular event.


Thank You!!

We here at TMSPA would like to thank our attendees, Guest Speakers and Vendors for a fabulous 2015 Table Mountain Star Party!
