Recommendation Needed | Houston Transplant Astronomy Buffs Seek Active Rockport Club!

"My wife and I recently retired TO Rockport and AWAY from Houston, Texas., In so doing I left behind a very active astronomy club.  I would like to meet others in the area who are interested in this avocation. I have built, bought and used several telescopes over the years and am presently considering getting into astrophotography. Possible future activities include formal meetings and public outreach. This is a "start-up" adventure so all ideas are welcome. Thanks for reading this."  - Thomas

A few years ago, I went to a Star Party at Goose Island that was hosted by a club that I THINK was out of Corpus. I’m also curious, Thomas. Do you happen to know my friend Chuck Shaw? You can e-mail me at
