On the weekend of June 13,14 2009 we had a meeting in Abla (Almería, south of Spain) to participate in the second Messier Marathon that was going to be held in that town. The Asociación Astronómica y Cultural Orión from Almería, which was organizing the event (jointly with the Abla town council) had previously invited us to participate in a previous date, but due to some weather problems the final date was posponed.

The planning for both days was great due to the efforts of the organizers, with several activities from outdoor meals (it look more like gastonomical societies), cultural / mathematical games, mainly directed by Luis Rodríguez, the maintainer of Juegos topológicos, some radio ham meetings with some people in Monterrey (México) and a quite intense observation night.
