The Southern Star Parties Sponsors and Backers

The Southern Star Party: Sponsors and Backers

We have just presented the eighth and, in my opinion, a very successful SSP at Night Sky Caravan Farm and I thought it would be the opportune moment to say something about the various people and organizations who have helped and assisted the SSP since its inception in March 2011.

The comprehensive list gives one an idea of the support we have enjoyed and recognizes their contribution to the success of the Southern Star party. Special mention has, however, to be made of two sponsors.

Alan and Rose Cassells have donated lights in April 2014 and the pegs for the Spring SSP in November 2015. More importantly they also “donate” a lot of their time to helping us unpack and pack up at every SSP and that is absolutely invaluable. Thank you guys!

Waltons in Stellenbosch have, for the last two years, been our biggest sponsor. Without their special discount on our stationery purchases, we could not have such a variety of stuff to put into our goody bags, which by the way, are also included in the sponsorship. A very big thank you Waltons and in recognition we place some photos of your very helpful staff at the Stellenbosch branch!
