I will second Wayne's comments, thanks for forwarding this around to various
Arizona astronomy groups.
We are indeed working hard to make ALCon 2010 a "stellar" event.  There will
be plenty of activities, presentations, and opportunities to share
information.  It's going to be an excellent convention and I hope you all
can participate!
There have been several planning meetings already and we have another coming
very soon.  If anybody has any recommendations, questions, or comments,
please don't hesitate to send a note to me or Bob Gent.

AlCon 2010 Co-Chair

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.
