The 30th year HEAS event notice and invitation

Post by Richard Hull » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:10 am

Well, the quarter century mark is fading in the rear view mirror and I am struggling to hit the one third century mark of my consecutive amateur science, fusor and flea market events. This year, as always, will be held at my home and lab on the first Saturday of October....5 October,2019.

This is an early heads-up for planning purposes for those who might wish to attend.

For those who have no idea what this is, go to the images du jour forum here and cycle through the many past years for October to see the many photos of that year's event. If you would like to attend, please e-mail me and I will send the formal invitation, a local map of how to get here from I-95 (north-south) or I-64 (east-west) and another sheet of hotels/motels phone numbers and nearby eateries.

Note: I usually have nearly 50 people attend and many are old Tesla coilers who were here in 1989 and are still attending. I might have 25 slots for fusion folks, so hop on the list ASAP. If I hit 50 committed attendees, I will shut down the invitations. If you sign up to attend and, at any time prior to the event find you cannot attend, please contact me as your empty slot might allow another person to attend.

If interested in the info I only respond to the e-mail address above so as not to clutter up this thread.

The perfesser is coming!....The perfesser is coming!.... Yes, Paul will be at HEAS in its 30th year. We are setting aside a one hour meeting from 3PM to 4PM on the day of the event , 5 October.... (May not take that long).... This meeting is for all attendees who are on Fusor.net. The meeting will be for suggestions, updates and info. crucial to the continued smooth operation of this fabulous website. Be sure to attend if at the event. We want your input, in person. The Perfesser will take the names of all shirkers into his little black notebook. Frank Sanns, Sgt. at arms will deal with them, later.

We still have a few slots open so if you haven't hopped on board you might e-mail me to receive your attendee info and formal invitation letter.

Wow! three weeks out and only a few slots left.

Will those who asked for time for the after dinner 20-30 min talks and evening demos, (7:00 PM - until), please e-mail me (address above), and give a two or three sentence overview of their talk or demo?

Thanks

CRITICAL - retain and bring a printed copy of your motel/restaurant keyed locations and related key numbered map that you have received.
We will all have to go to Saturday morning breakfast on our own or in small prearranged groups from Friday night. Same is true for Saturday Dinner.
Pick your Restaurant of choice and find it on your map by its keyed number. Arrange breakfast and dinner ride alongs to a given restaurant. A couple of places are within walking distance of my home.
For those in motels with no car find out who else is their with a car to arrange a ride.
Got a GPS?...You are on your own and at its mercy.

Heads Up!!
..... It seems we will have a film crew at HEAS working on a story related to the fusor. They will be from CNN (Turner Broadcasting) for their "Big Story" segment.
You may be questioned and photographed. It is not all about me or the fusor, but fusioneers in general.
