I’m sure some of you have been thinking what happened to our January meeting at Pedro’s Castle and Nick’s monthly newsletter
Unfortunately 2013 brings changes to the Astronomical Society as Nick has taken a back seat in the Society for the time being due to Ill health
So apart from calling for volunteers’ and a current respite from collecting membership fees we will hopefully have our next meeting at Pedro’s Castle in mid February, I’ll try to avoid the 14!
Remember are meetings at Pedros are free of charge
We have been planing for sometime to offer to the General Public an Introductory course on Astronomy. This will be held at the UCCI Observatory and will cover both classroom and practical sessions. The course is non technical and open to all . The course will be taught by myself, Bill Hrudey and Richard McCloud and is an offical course offrred by the UCCI. Because of this The cost of the course is CI $125 (plus an addition registration fee – either $10 or $25)
The course is for 7 weeks and will be held on Tuesday Evenings at 7:30 PM, starting 29th Jan
Registration for the course should be made by Friday 18th at the Admin Office on campus. However as this is a bit short notice and how to register at the college is somewhat of a grey area if you are unfamiliar with the procedure we have organized a free evening to sign up .
This will be held at the UCCI Observatory on Tuesday 22nd at 7:30 PM.
If enough people have registered then the course will commence the following Wednesday 27th January at 7:30 PM
For those wishing to register directly with the UCCI Admin Office by Friday – it is best located by asking the security guard on entering the campus.
Best Wishes to All in 2013 , and Clear Skies
