2024 Diary of Doings

The Alberta Star Party website is now up, and it appears that the venue will once again be the appropriately named Starland Campground.

A new addition to the website is a provision: “The Calgary Centre books all of Starland Area “A” for the Alberta Star Party.
Therefore camping in Area “A” during the Alberta Star Party is restricted to paid star party registrants.”

However, and this can be verified with Starland County officials, the whole camp site is run on a ‘first come first served’ basis, and the Calgary Centre has no actual authority to impose any such restrictions.

The February 2024  Starseeker newsletter does not list an organizer for the Star Party, but since the current Council is moving toward running things by ‘committee’, they maybe have a handful of volunteers to replace the previous organizer, Jason Nishiyama.
