So much fun, I thought we should do it again ...
  
This LCA is shaping up to be full of astronomical goodness, and we're very near a bunch™ of very cool radio astronomy facilities.
+
The Martial Arts BoF is for any practitioner of any martial art to come together, train, share and learn.  If you're a beginner or just mildly curious, you're welcome to come along and participate.
  
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.
+
I'm inclined to to hold it on the Tuesday morning - this will give me (Daryl) a chance to scope out the grounds for a suitable training "venue" (where venue could be an outdoor area).

* Visit to the [http://www.ivec.org/ivec-projects/pawsey/ Pawsey Centre]

===Perth Observatory Stargazing Night===
+
* Paul , Ninjitsu

* Ian , Shotakan
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.
+
* Nick Urbanik --- totally lacking any style or finess
 
+
* Tim Bartlett -- Wing Chun Kung Fu (and a little Tae Kwon Do), but out of training for a year or so
Bookings can be made by phoning (08) 9293 8255 between 8.30am and 3.30pm (AWST, 3 hours behind AEDT), Monday to Friday. Tickets are $38 for adults, $28 for children/concession card holders.
+
* Pia Waugh, Kung Fu. Looking forward to it! :)
 
+
* Jon Oxer, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai, but have a cracked rib so rather limited right now
'''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.
+

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.
