Previous Minutes

Previous minutes not ready yet! Not yet approved.

 

Telescopes

Should we have the club buy a small telescope for solar viewing? Most of our outreach activities are during the day, and it is a great way to get passersby involved. Solar scopes have been a huge draw whenever we've been able to have a member provide one.

Steve will look into this. It would be fairly inexpensive, and would be very helpful for club events and recruiting new members.

 

Youth Group

Steve has had a couple of members express an interest in starting a youth group. This would require a range of solid scopes to use, and a set of volunteers.

 

Dark Sky Site

Mark and Thomas will present an update to the club regarding dark sky sites at the next club meeting.

 

Banquet

We need to start looking for a speaker. One thought: coordinate with the Pacific Science Center, they also have candidate speakers.

 

VP Programs

Still no volunteers for this position. Perhaps we can find some way to motivate a new or existing member to sign up? We do have a few more speakers lined up, and we can have a "free for all" night, where people show up with pictures and club sub-groups can present.
