- Owens Valley down to Lake Havasu City AZ on Saturday night, July 22, around 11:04PM PDT/MST
Both campaigns are optional, but they provide great practice opportunities and will contribute to IOTA efforts. Participating teams are encouraged to sign up using OccultWatcher (or to contact John Keller so that he can sign your team up on OW). Details are provided below.

I would love to be part of this, but this is the week I had planned my out of state vacation. Next time.
Wildwood is out of the specified area, but we would have joined. Unfortunately, our operators are away for summer vacation.
