The OAS hosts several  star parties every year.  During the summer, around the new moon, we have our star party up at Hurricane Ridge in the heart of the Olympic Mountains.  This is a one night event in an extremely dark site over looking Mount Olympus and the neighboring mountains.  The southern skies are excellent not to mention the awesome beauty of the mountains!  This is a free star party, except for the entrance fee to the Olympic National Park.
