[Try Astronomy] Januaray 2005 Meeting

  • From: "Vic & Carolyn Vargo" <vargocj@xxxxxxxxxx>
  • To: <tryastronomy@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Sat, 8 Jan 2005 12:57:48 -0600

Our next meeting is at 7:00 PM on Thursday January 13th. As usual, it will be 
held at the New Urban Ecology Center building 1500 East Park Place.  We will 
have a presentation on Messier Objects (those strange fuzzy patches of light 
everybody talks about) by Art Paque. Hopefully it will be clear afterwards 
since there are now some good objects out for observation including:   Comet 
Makholz, Saturn, and some neat messier objects appropriate to Art's

In terms of the business meeting at 6:00 PM there are some important items we 
want to discuss:

    1)   Affiliation with the Urban Ecology Center (UEC).    After several 
discussions that I have had with UEC people  (Judy & Ken), it appears that we 
already are affiliated with them and that their insurance covers us for UEC 
sponsored events such as viewing on their grounds or during events that are 
publicized through them. Examples were the Venus Transit and the August 2003 
Mars viewing in which we had over 200 people show up).  If we need to do any 
financial transactions we would simply notify them to add us as a line item to 
their budget. It now appears that the vote we talked about at the last meeting 
on whether or not to join the UEC is not necessary.

    2)    Programs Committee. The function would be to determine and schedule 
what presentations and/or what speakers we want to choose for the upcoming year.

    3)    Dobsonian Project. If and how we want to proceed.

    4)    Messier Marathon. do we want to set up a march Messier or 
Mini-Messier marathon sometime in  March?  Where?, With another group?,... 

    5)    Our Webpage. Any ideas or sugesstions you may have.

Please let me know if you have any corrections or additions to the above 

Thanks, Vic Vargo    Phone:    (414) 327-3861    Cell:    (414) 331-3862
