Abstract: 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.
