FRLT brings you an evening of good company, pot-luck style camp dinner, and the big starry sky of Sierra Valley. The night of August 11-12 is one of the peak viewing times for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. 

The event will be at the Maddalena Corrals on A-24. We hope you can make it out to the Maddalena Ranch for this fun experience.
