This monthly meeting will be a little different from the usual! As allowed by the LAS bylaws, the meeting date for May has been changed by LAS President Ken Alderson to Saturday, May 26 at 8:00 PM at the Urban Astronomy Center. This change was approved by a unanimous vote of the Board at the May 3, 2018 meeting.
This will NOT be the annual election meeting . Per the bylaws, three quarters (9) members of the board were present at the board meeting. It was decided by a unanimous vote of the members present that the annual election meeting will be held at the December meeting in order to assure a quorum and to match our financial year. The existing board will continue until then.
As required, notice is hereby given to all LAS members that Article 3, Elections, Section 1 has been changed to: “Shall be held annually at the December general membership meeting.”
A members only cookout will be held starting at 6:30 PM. The LAS will provide hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken and members bring a side based on this listing A-F: salad, G-P: vegetable, Q-Z: dessert and $5.00 to cover costs. At the same time our LAS Telescope Sale and Swap Meet will take place from 6:30-8:00 during the picnic. Please RSVP to LAS President Ken Alderson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 502-939-0324 no later than Friday.
Our LAS Telescope Sale will take place from 6:30-8:00 during the picnic. With many thanks to our LAS Equipment Manager Rick Whitworth, our list of surplus equipment is complete. The list is impressive and goes from beginner scopes, perfect for kids, and priced as low as $50.00 to GoTo mounts and Scopes at $795.00. All members who have anything for sale can bring it to this event for a Swap Meet and we will provide space for display. The LAS will get a 10% commission on all sales.
And finally the monthly meeting will overlap with the monthly UAC Public Night so bring your scopes out to show the night sky to the members of the public!
