HEAS 2018 invitation sign up time

Post by Richard Hull » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:32 pm

This is the open invitation period for attending the 29th yearly High Energy Amateur Science conference and gathering.

As always it is to be held at my lab in Richmond Va on the first Saturday in October, which is the 6th of October 2018.
You must contact me via e-mail if you wish to attend. If you are not on our registration list, you cannot attend as we have only a limited number of people we can handle here at my home and lab. If you are interested and plan to attend e-mail me your firm commitment and I will forward a three page document with your invitation in a return email.

Many on these forums have attended before and still need to confirm that you will be here.

For those who are new to Fusor.net, you can get the flavor of what goes on by going backwards in the image Du Jour forum to all early October postings for all past years to see the images.

There will be the usual $10.00 attendance fee collected only on the day of the event to cover the free sodas and munchies we provide.

So RSVP ASAP if you want to attend.

P.S. bring a gang o' dough as I plan on unloading a lot of my books, instruments, NIM gear, vacuum stuff. I just have far too much here.

Is it *only* the 6th? Can you post any notes on transportation and lodging?

There has always been a Friday evening gathering for those in motels arriving on the day before. After 4 PM on Friday we gather and chat until about 6PM and then take an hour and a half off Until 7:30 when the lab opens back up until about midnight. Saturday is the big day.

As the last person typically leaves the lab around 3AM Sunday morning, Sunday is a dead day. I sleep until about 3 PM and then clean up and restore the wreakage of the past 48 hours, etc.

send me an e-mail and I will forward particulars. The airport is about 20 miles from my home and I imagine Uber can be called or there are taxi's and of course rental cars. For those managing to make it to the many motels in the area less than a mile from me with no transport, you need to contact someone at the gatherings who are staying at your motel or at a nearby one who can ferry you back and forth to your motel from the meeting and follow there exact time to pick you up or take you back. I will be far too busy as host taking care of issues and folks on site to ferry folks around.

I have just now sent out all the formal invitations via e-mail to those who attended last year from fusor.net.

If you did not get an invitation via your e-mail and attended HEAS 2017. Let me know.

We are filling up fast this year.

It is always an interesting adventure at Richard's. There are demonstrations, presentations, plenty to buy and sell of specialty items of all kinds, and many members to meet up with. If you have not been to one, you might consider it. I am not sure how many more Richard can tolerate of all of us. His meet ups that have spanned decades. I know you reevaluate each year but I hope you continue for many more. We really appreciate all that you do to host the HEAS.
