Ad Hoc Groups
Ad hoc groups that have met for the PBPA over the past year have included the PBPA Reeves County Workgroup and Dark Skies Initiative Advisory Group, neither of which are PBPA standing committees but are groups organized by the PBPA for a specific purpose. Both of these groups focus on activities in the Delaware Basin area of the greater Permian Basin. The Dark Skies group focuses specifically on operational activities that could help keep the skies of West Texas dark for the McDonald Observatory in Ft. Davis, Texas. The Reeves County group provides operators in Reeves County a venue to discuss common problems or roadblocks to operations and advises the PBPA on activities to be taken to help reduce or remove those problems and roadblocks.
