Expected Changes for BoBfest 2020



We will have THREE afternoon talk sessions of 45 minutes each. There will be five available talks each hour at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. At least one session each hour will be designated "just for Kids"

We will have BoBfest T-shirts available for pre-order and sale during BoBfest

When you check in at BoBfest, this year you will receive a booklet with all needed information, instead of a packet of paperwork.

The afternoon sessions will be designated as Children, Beginner, General, or Advanced, but you are free to attend any sessions!

We are encouraging and inviting more small vendors to the Marketplace.

Frank Westmoreland Astronomical Simulations will end at 3:00 p.m.

Solar Observing outdoors will begin at Lunch instead of all morning
