The following page...


...tells me a lot of stuff I never knew about this Star Party. Actually, I didn't know anything other than it was legendary and huge.

It says kids fourteen and under are free if with their parents; I'd hope they wouldn't be by themselves! The page also says full-time college students twenty-six and under are free with valid ID; maybe that's because some show up for extra credit (?).

Then there is this stark statement: "Note that attendance is limited to 700 people, and we reserve the right to turn you away at the door if you have not registered." No doubt that limitation is due to the size of the grounds. I wonder who owns the property.
