Earth Hour, 23 March 2013 - Switch OFF!

Earth Hour, the global environmental initiative, began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses switched off their lights for one hour to take a stand against climate change.This year, Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, 23 March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

All MNS Miri members are urged to switch off non-essential lights for the hour. If you're stumped as to what can you do to amuse yourself in this hour of darkness... join us for a night, camping outdoors as we commemorate Earth Hour.

Date: 23 - 24 March 2013
Venue : Baraya Laut Resort (See Map below)

Tentative Itinerary (will be fine tuned):
23 March, 2013 
3.00 pm onwards - Arrive at Baraya Laut and pitch your tents
6.00 to 10.00 pm  - BBQ, Earth Hour and Astronomy Appreciation (led by Musa)

24 March, 2013
Free and easy in the morning

Costs for accommodation/BBQ pit (rental of bungalow which is a must for the use of the campsite) will be equally shared. We're suggesting a group BBQ so any costs incurred for the group BBQ shall be split as well (will be communicated over mail). For those without tents, there are rooms available at the bungalow so first come, first serve. And if you don't fancy camping, don't hesitate to join us for BBQ/Earth Hour and make your way back to Miri. 

Those interested, please sign up with Joyce ( /  

Non-members are more then welcomed with a token fee of RM5.00 on top of the shared costs.
