The MSRAL Convention is being hosted by Astronomy Club of Tulsa and Broken Arrow Sidewalk Astronomers. 
The 2020 MSRAL will be held on the third floor of the Jenks High School Planetarium
in the Math and Science Building located at 205 East "B" Street, Jenks, OK 74037. 
 
Registration and conferences will be held here on the third floor along with the Friday night meal. 
After dinner on Friday, the attendees are invited to the ACT Observatory in Mounds, OK
for a star party and observing scavenger hunt for the youth. 
This is about 35 to 40 minutes from the conference location.  (see VENUE tab on website for map)
 
This year, there will be a Student MSRAL Conference held in the Jenks High School Planetarium that is open to high school students 9th - 12th grades only.  The peer run conference will be accessible to all students - blind/legally blind, deaf/hearing impaired and non-ambulatory.  Because of a special project the youth are working on, adults are asked to attend their conference to allow students to have an element of surprise and for the peer run conference to be a great experience.
 
Across the hall from the planetarium is the large conference room where the adult program will be held.  
In between these two conference sites is the lobby, vendor, reception area with seating for networking and vendor visits.
 
The Saturday night banquet is a full service, plated meal held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Oklahoma Rooms I - III.  
This hotel is across from Oral Roberts University at 7902 S. Lewis Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74136.   (see VENUE tab for map)
