Some 2020 BAS Events to Recommence

As Queensland now moves to Covid-19 Stage 2 Restrictions we can now recommence limited BAS-Member-Only telescope evenings at Ipswich (Harding’s Paddock) and the Sunshine Coast (Maleny Golf Club). Please see the “BAS Members Events Calendar” on this website for specific details.

All events will be operating under Queensland Covid-19 restrictions:

  • maximum of 20 participants
  • wide social distancing telescope setup spacing
  • no sharing of equipment without liberal use of sanitiser product on gear and by users
  • name and contact details to be provided to the event coordinator on the night.

We are not yet able to commence our monthly meetings or public observing events. We await the move to Stage 3 Covid-19 Restrictions before considering such events.
