Fellow amateurs -
What a great weekend!
I'd like to take a minute and thank everyone involved with this year's Okie Tex Star Party especially Jeff Thibodeau, Larry Beatty, Phil Kuebler and Pete Kron. Gentlemen, the OTSP has been high on my list for several years, and I simply can't voice how much I enjoyed it. I was honored to be asked to speak before such a group of knowledgeable and friendly amateurs. Although I was 2200 miles from home, and meeting many old friends for the first time, I was as comfortable as I'd ever been. The scenery was amazing, and the skies (what small chance I had to view under them) were superb. Between the fellowship, the skies, the observing, the fun and the excellent food it's easy to see why Okie-Tex is one of the premiere star parties in the world.
Thanks once again for the opportunity to come and share with everyone.
Wishing you all clear, dark skies!
Tom Trusock
