Club members and Okie-Tex friends - it is with a heavy heart that we announce that the Okie-Tex Star Party for 2020 has been cancelled. This was not an easy decision, but after hard conversations with the Oklahoma City Astronomy Club board, as well as the Camp Billie Joe Board of Directors, the decision has been made to cancel the Okie-Tex Star Party for this year due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns. We know everyone was excited for the star party this year, both because Okie-Tex is always a banner event of the year, and because this year we were going to hold the Star Party inside a brand new building, and we are all sad that we cannot hold this party.

For those of you that have already registered, refunds are available by emailing In lieu of refunds, however, we are also offering the ability to donate your registration fee to the building fund so that we may continue to upgrade and ensure our new facility is exactly what we want it to be.

We thank you for your understanding on this difficult issue, and we hope to return better than ever in 2021. Clear skies to all.

If you have any additional questions, please direct them See you in 2021!
