AstroBash XXVI @ Avillion Port Dickson


How big is the group going to Port Dickson?
We are expecting around 40 pax, its kind of a small group and just big enough to fully occupy a single coach.

When is the deadline for signing up?
There is no exact deadline, but once our quota of 40 pax is filled, we will stop accepting sign ups.

Can I have a triple-sharing room instead of twin-sharing?
This is yet to be confirmed, there might be a possibility of grouping two odd groups together since as for now, all rooms booked are twin-sharing.

Can non-NUS students join us?
Yes they can.

When are we leaving/coming back?
Expect to leave Singapore early morning on the 13th December and return around 7 to 8pm at night on the 15th December. The trip to Port Dickson takes roughly 5 hrs.

What is the itinerary like?
During the day, it is basically free and easy. We recommend sharing a cab and heading to Port Dickson town to see the sights and enjoy the cheaper amenities there, or you can just head to the beach, or simply just laze around in your rooms.
As for the night, the society will set up an observation site (with an 8inch and 6inch telescope) at the beach and will be there till as late as possible. Meteor showers, if under clear conditions, tend to peak after midnight.  Participants are free to join us whenever they wish. (Though we will usually be there from 9pm to 3am++)

How are the administrative/payment details settled?
Everything is settled online. Once the participants are confirmed, we will be sending the necessary procedures to the email. Payment can be done through iBanking into our account, though cash payment is available via meeting in NUS.
Administrative details include Next-of-kin details, Indemnity form and Swimming Declaration forms and will be emailed shortly.
There will also a briefing on the last day of the exams, around 3rd or 4th December, though that is also optional. (slides and necessary info will be emailed)
