TAAS PERIHELION BANQUET!
We know that there are still Thanksgiving and the Holidays to be savored and enjoyed and shared with families and friends in 2014, and we wish you happy times during November and December.
In January, you will have the opportunity to put some glitter in your new year of 2015 with the TAAS Perihelion Banquet-- a chance to meet up with old and new friends in a festive atmosphere.
This year, the Banquet will be held on Saturday, January 10th from 6:00-10:30 at the Elegante Hotel on Menaul, and plans are already underway for food, prizes, speaker, awards and the election of new officers.
Your invitation and ballot have been sent with all the information to RSVP and attend, and we look forward to hearing from you very soon!
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
TELESCOPES! MAKE THEM-USE THEM-FIX THEM!
Next session - Wednesday, December 3rd
TAAS has a wonderful special interest group-Amateur Telescope Making/Maintenance-which meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month (see our calendar). Members and the public alike are welcome to visit, learn more about the opportunities, bring in a telescope for assistance, begin a telescope from scratch or just ask questions.
Each month, there is a test for Binoculars, Double Star, Deep Sky Object and the Challenge Object--think of it as a game for your telescope or binoculars. If you combine this with your GNTO, Star Party and Observer SIG stargazing, you are getting quite a workout!
Keep reading to take the Challenge.
