Actually I think the attendees are down to earth (pardon the pun)....there is a great deal of sharing of equipment and information that goes on....one particular fellow has some spectacular set up and they all use it....I was around on one of the days after and there were stragglers (my moron of a dog went visiting so I drove over to pick him up -- he can walk there but then he's exhausted and I have to get him)...and I spoke with them...I picked up an extremely collegial atmosphere

Good to hear that the event is so casual and inclusive. I visited one such event a long time ago and found a few serious amateurs and a bunch of numbskulls acting stupid. Those that owned a serious piece of kit were very protective of it. I suppose that some might have had the patience and desire to edify attendees but no one seemed to know enough to show an interest. I was not impressed. That was a long time ago. Thank you for your reply. Much appreciated.

I think the group that hosts it is the North York something or other but it's called "Starfest" and they do have a web page...always the weekend after the long weekend in August at River Place Park in Ayton.
