OSP '99, Indian-themed, my personal favorite T-Shirt
There are 154 cheerful astronomers
in this picture! Suggestion: Now go to the "Star Party History
Section" and count up how many astronomers we had back in
Below you'll find a close-up of
a few of the folks on the left side of the group; they are mostly
OSP Committee members, and most sport the 1999 OSP T-shirt.
As of 2007, this particular shirt with its Native American motifs
remains my favorite. June 2009 Update on the shirt design! I discovered
what appears to have been the inspiration for our 1999 T-shirt
design at the Pendleton store in Washougal on a gorgeous Indian
blanket. Click here for more! ......
Now, back to the Group photo: among those seen in this close-up
are Bob McGown, OSP webmaster Dareth Murray, Joe Rottman, Rob
Brown, and Jan Keiski, Librarian at RCA, with her walking cast
in John's lap.. ..In the main picture above you can also find
Craig Stott, whose quote from the early Steens Mountain OSP days
is found in the 1988 coverage page (he's in the front center area).
Those living in the immediate Portland
area picked up their Group Photo at the regular October Rose City
Astronomer's (RCA) meeting on October 18th, 1999.
See you next year!
your Group Photographer since 1989, and many more to come!
