Correction: I can meet someone in Lafayette either Monday, Thursday, or Friday next week. Tuesday is now out. From late morning until 7 or 8:00 PM should work for any of those dates.
A Friday or Saturday trip to Baton Rouge next weekend (Dec 9th or 10th) does not look good because of bad weather for viewing. I may try to do the Dec 17 meeting at Coral Connection- especially if the weather is clear that day. There is an evening observatory viewing in BR that same evening. It may be difficult to drag the kids around for so much driving, yet I can try to make that work.
