CAO 2018 Spring Work Party - No more volunteers required.

CAO House
Saturday, May 26, 2018 - 8:00am to Sunday, May 27, 2018 - 12:00pm

Due to an enthusiastic response, we are no longer accepting volunteers for the Spring Work Party as we have reached our capacity in being able to provide a place to sleep as well as cooking for everyone.

This year, the Carr Astronomical Observatory (CAO) is celebrating its 20th anniversary.  This site and the facilities that we continue to use today could not have reached this milestone without the countless hours put in by RASC-TC volunteers at work parties to do regular maintenance and to make improvements.

To ensure that members can enjoy the CAO for the next 20 years and beyond, this year’s Spring Work Party will be held on May 26-27, 2018.

Volunteers are invited to arrive as early as Friday afternoon, May 25, 2018 to enjoy some social time before the work begins the next morning and comes to an end around noon on Sunday.  As a volunteer, you will be provided all meals from Saturday breakfast to Sunday lunch plus all regular CAO user fees are waived for the weekend.

If you would like to help out, please log onto the TC website with your National username and password and make a booking at:

In the comments section, please state that you are attending the work party.

This is a rain or shine event and we will have work to do both indoors and outdoors for all skill levels.
