The Webfooted Astronomer - October 2001


2002 SAS Board Nominations

OS Guiness (of the Irish beer brewers) once wrote:

“To our shame we moderns have taken the word amateur, opposed it to professionalism and excellence, and turned it into a matter of tepid motives and shoddy results. But amateur, as G.K. Chesterton never tired of saying, means “lover.” ‘A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well.’”

That may apply to how I do astronomy, but I would never apply it to the present SAS board (including appointees and trustees). These remarkably talented people are a joy to work with, and make it easy for me to act as president. They are all very professional in doing their work for the club and doing it well. This year’s SAS board members who are up for re-election are:

President: Mary Ingersoll
1st VP - Programs: George Best
2nd VP - Education: Karl Schroeder
3rd VP - Membership: Ron Leamon
4th VP - Publicity: Brian Allen
Treasurer: Judy Schroeder
Secretary: Greg Donohue
The elections will be held at the November SAS meeting.
