Flares are by their nature random and unpredictable events and
flare observations are often the serendipitous result of programs
designed for other scientific endeavors. Thus, few observations of
flares covering multiple wavelength regimes, with both spectroscopic
and photometric information, are available to test stellar flare models.
Occasionally, a bold and reckless team will put together a flare
campaign, employing suitable statistical arguments to convince
the relevant telescope allocation committees that such a campaign will
prove fruitful, while hoping desperately for the combination of clear
weather, working instruments and cooperative star necessary to
warrant the herculean organizational effort. We report here on
one such campaign, conducted during March, 2000 on the dM3e flare
star AD Leo.
