Thanks, AJ,  for getting the word around on the various Arizona listservers 
about the upcoming Astronomical League Convention (ALCon) to be held in Tucson 
from 24-26 June 2010. It has been a long time since there has been an ALCon in 
AZ and it promises to be a good one! 
Although the ALCons always have a good slate of speakers with interesting 
presentations, we in the southwest should have an excellent lineup to offer. 
Tucson (and all of AZ, really) has an especially good selection of astronomical 
sites for astro-tourists to see. Meeting people from around the country with 
your same interest is a definite plus to these get-togethers which usually 
attract a couple hundred attendees. There will be a good number of vendors to 
visit, too. 
As mentioned in the email below, a nice location on Tucson's east side has been 
chosen for the main event of the ALCon, but it will be awhile before the agenda 
is set so that if you're interesting in giving a presentation please contact 
the organizers named in the email below. 

Clear skies, 
Wayne (aka Mr. Galaxy)
Chair, Western Region of the Astronomical League

I saw this on the EVAC mailing list and thought someone on AZ Observing or SAC 
might be interested.  Enjoy and thanks Howard!

Hi all,

I'm not sure if anyone is aware of this so I am posting FYI.


ALCon 2010 to be Held in Tucson, AZ

The Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association, the International Dark-Sky 
Association, and the Astronomical League will be jointly hosting the annual 
convention of the League from June 24 until 26, 2010 at the Tucson Hilton East. 
 We are planning for great speakers and exciting tours.   The AL holds its 
annual awards banquet, and it presents major national awards during the 
conference.  Among others, the National Young Astronomer Award will be 
presented.  In addition, astronomy vendors from across the USA will display 
their latest products.  We also expect leaders in IDA's dark sky movement to 
participate.  Keith Schlottman, VP of TAAA, and Bob Gent, a past president of 
the Astronomical League, are the event's co-chairs.  Please mark your calendars 
and stay tuned for additional updates.
