A special (repeat) offer to all our friends that might be "clouded out" this
weekend. EVAC is having their regular monthly meeting on Friday evening,
7:30 PM to 10:00 PM.  Guests are always welcome, especially if they are
members of SAC. The Location is the Gilbert Regional Library, at the SE
corner of Greenfield Road and Guadalupe Rd in Gilbert, Arizona. This
location is about 1.5 miles south of US60 on Greenfield Rd. The meeting runs
from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM. Visitors are welcome. Map information can be found
at:  http://evaconline.org/mtg.html

The scheduled feature speaker is Ted Dunham of Lowell Observatory in
Flagstaff. Mr. Dunham works with instrumentation for observing occultations
with SOFIA, and is also a team member on the recently launched, and
activated NASA Kepler Mission. He will be speaking to EVAC members and
visitors on the Kepler Mission status. Background on the Kepler Mission can
be found at:  http://kepler.nasa.gov/

Additionally, Brian Dewelles, the Meade Sales Representative for Arizona,
will be presenting the newly released  ETX-LS [LightSwitch] 6" SC type
telescope. This telescope is now being shipped to dealers around the
country. Brian will have one of these telescopes with him for the pre-break
presentation, and will be available for questions during the break period.
Following the speaker, Brain will have the telescope setup  at the GRCO
observatory, adjacent to the library, for those that would like to examine
it further.  Information on the ETX-LS can be found at:
