Thanks very much for your Tucson suggestions. For posterity
and new-comers, here are the headlines from your advice.
Tucson show overviews:
* Feb 7 2003
Fourth Annual Meteor Mayhem Birthday Bash &
Harvey Meteorite Awards Dinner
Hosts: Geoff Notkin (geoking_at_notkin.net) and Steve Arnold
8pm at La Fuente Restaurant (http://www.lafuenterestaurant.com)
1749 North Oracle Road
* Feb 8 2003
Michael Blood (mlblood_at_cox.net) auction on Saturday
Preview: Room 316 at Inn Suites
* Feb 9 2003
Darryl Pitt's auction on Sunday
Time and place?
Hotels that meteorite folks favor:
* Kartchner Caverns
* Dave Schultz's yet-to-be-organized (?) meteorite hunting trip
Anne's summary strategy:
"It is rather simple. First you explore the InnSuites, and
you will find there a lot of meteorite dealers. Then you
hang around the InnSuites, and if you hang around long
enough you will see everybody else, because everybody ends
up at the InnSuites eventually."
Hotels get booked several months in advance, so watch out.
Priceline (and similar outfits) might still have rooms available
at some of the bigger hotels.
Thanks again for the advice.
BTW, I was looking at partly clouldy skies over Austin, Texas
during the Leonids. Clouds cleared just as the show was over
(around 5:00 localtime). Still, the show was good.
