This LCA is shaping up to be full of astronomical goodness, and we're very near a bunch™ of very cool radio astronomy facilities.
  
== Before the event ==

To complement the Astronomy Miniconf, we're aiming to organise at least one site visit to an operational astronomy facility - most likely the [http://www.ivec.org/ivec-projects/pawsey/ Pawsey Centre], a new supercomputing facility that will be part of the SKA project.
  
You need a gpg key to start, create one now!

You might as well make it with as big a key size as possible.

We've had very strong interest from delegates on the LCA2014 chat list in attending the Perth Observatory for a night-time stargazing tour. Everyone needs to make their own booking, and bookings need to be made soon as spots will fill up quickly. The observatory doesn't have an online booking/payment system, so you'll need to call them with your credit card details to reserve your spot.

== At the event ==
+
Once you've made your booking, please add your name below so that I can keep track of those attending.
We will need someone to collate the keys and print them out.
+
Please let us know how many we should print and where to print them.
+
  
What we did last year was go to a lecture theatre with a projector.
+
====Observatory tour attendees====
Each person stands up, shows their photo id and read their fingerprint aloud.
+
printouts of everyone's fingerprints were provided so you can tick off as you go

This worked ok but took a long time to get through everyone.

== Ad hoc Signing ==

The logistics of getting everyone to the observatory is possibly going to be tricky. Getting there by public bus would take a little over 2 hours, which almost certainly rules that out. The only viable options would seem to be car-pooling (locals and/or sharing hire cars and/or sharing cabs). The observatory is 38km from UWA. If enough people book for the observatory ~and~ if we can coordinate things well enough, it may be possible to book (a) mini-bus(ses) for the evening if we can find people with the appropriate licence amongst delegates, or we may be able to book a charter bus if we get 40+ people going. But that all takes organisation and (most importantly) the ability to collect money in advance - which usually proves difficult, at best.
  
Put your fingerprint on a piece of paper and hand it out to people.

To get a feel for how doable car-pooling is, if you're a Perth local (or will have a hire car on the Monday evening) and are able to assist with transport, please put your name and number of spare seats available below.
No need to do it formally just swap as you meet.

Things to watch out for:

=====Available rides=====
* does it match thair name

'''Name'''                    '''Available seats'''
* Does the person have a key with that fingerprint, do the numbers match.
+
* know that anyone can generate a key and claim an email address
+
Andrew Buckeridge      2
* if someone can be bothered they can keep trying to generate a key with the first 8 digits the same as another key but getting the whole fingerprint is nearly impossible

== When you get home ==
+
EditName                EditSeats
after the event you should have notes of who to trust the next thing to do is sign the key.
+
EditName                EditSeats
You can individually sign each key, export the signature and send it to them.
+
 
+
[https://wiki.debian.org/caff caff] is a tool that automates the signing a little.
+
It will sign and send an email (encrypted if possible) containing the signature.
+
It requires some setup but it does make things easier.

Perth Observatory Stargazing Night

We've had very strong interest from delegates on the LCA2014 chat list in attending the Perth Observatory for a night-time stargazing tour. Everyone needs to make their own booking, and bookings need to be made soon as spots will fill up quickly. The observatory doesn't have an online booking/payment system, so you'll need to call them with your credit card details to reserve your spot.

The night we're booking for is Monday 6th January.

Once you've made your booking, please add your name below so that I can keep track of those attending.

Transportation

The logistics of getting everyone to the observatory is possibly going to be tricky. Getting there by public bus would take a little over 2 hours, which almost certainly rules that out. The only viable options would seem to be car-pooling (locals and/or sharing hire cars and/or sharing cabs). The observatory is 38km from UWA. If enough people book for the observatory ~and~ if we can coordinate things well enough, it may be possible to book (a) mini-bus(ses) for the evening if we can find people with the appropriate licence amongst delegates, or we may be able to book a charter bus if we get 40+ people going. But that all takes organisation and (most importantly) the ability to collect money in advance - which usually proves difficult, at best.
