A Note from Our President, Alan Ward, about our October Meeting.
Just a heads up that our normally scheduled meeting for Friday Oct 7, will be postponed till Friday, Oct 14 @ 7:00pm due to the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. I will send the zoom link to everyone next Sunday, Oct 9 in advance to our Oct 14 meeting.
Thanks to Science North and Olathe & her staff, I’m excited to report to you all that our Oct 14 meeting will be our first Hybrid-Zoom meeting. This will take place at Science North in the Digital Planetarium Theatre. (not the Doran Planetarium @ Laurentian University). It will be an awesome experience for many of you who have never experienced Science North’s Planetarium. You must come out to see this!!
I encourage you all to attend in person if possible. For those of you out of town who can’t attend in person, you will still be able to log into Zoom and witness and contribute to the meeting. I will be working with Olathe this week in preparing for the meeting. I am hoping that it will be the most unique Hybrid Zoom meeting experience in Canada amongst RASC Centres.
Please be patient with us as we will be embarking on a new way of conducting hybrid meetings going forward. There will be growing pains but my ambitions are that we will be enticing others into joining our meetings. I realize that we are all tired of zoom meetings and we want to meet again in person. So do I.
We have lined up a couple international speakers that we will be advertising across other RASC Centres across Canada in the next couple of months so I would advise that our RASC Sudbury zoom members log in earlier at 6:30pm. This will be a first come first serve meeting limited to 100 attendees.
I will follow up next Sunday on more details about the Oct 14th meeting. So stay tuned.
Also, a special edition of our club’s newsletter will be sent to you on Sunday, Oct 9. This newsletter will contain some very special and memorable moments as well as an update on a special local community astronomical project along with some other cool things. Patrick, has been preparing this issue over the summer so stay tuned!
