Important Oregon Star Party update:

  • Oregon Star Party 2022 Cancelled

    After an intense month of exploring road options to reach Indian Trail Springs, and carefully looking at 3 alternate sites in the area we’ve determined that we cannot hold the Oregon Star Party for 2022 and we have to start the cancellation process.

    This decision was very difficult to reach, although by the time all the information rolled in it was a pretty obvious conclusion.  The 42 Road rebuilding construction work will make the paved roads getting to ITS much more enjoyable in future years, and we have a process to maintain the dirt sections (4240 and 800 Rds), but we just can’t get around the construction road closures this year.  We did a lot of work on alternate sites and we have a couple of “close-by” candidates, but we could not get the assessments completed in time to get a USFS permit approved in time for this summer.

    We will process refunds in the same way that we did for last year’s fire cancellation.  If you paid via PayPal we will issue a refund via PayPal.  None of the checks that were submitted have been cashed, so If you paid by check we will simply shred your check.
