Guy Mackie - MKSP Prize Procurement

Guy Mackie is Past President, Past VP and current Director of Telescopes of the RASC Okanagan Centre. Guy thinks he has the funest volunteer job (as prize procurer) for the MKSP.

Have scope, will observe is Guy's credo.

Each year sponsors of our star party generously donate many great prizes and Guy gets to watch them pile up like gifts under the tree. Yes I do peek.


Guy enjoys many aspects of astronomy but on Mount Kobau he can usually be found trying to see the dimmest and almost exhausted photons of distant objects whose light can barely take another step beyond the peak of Kobau, let alone make a bannock run to Osoyoos.
