Agenda for 5/2/04 Board Meeting

Posted on by tepiastar

This is the tentative agenda for the meeting of the OCA Board this Sunday, May 2, 2004. This isn’t cast in stone – it can change, and the most likely changes would be additions to the agenda.

All members are welcome to attend. If you want to come, please contact Barbara Toy ( or 714/606-1825) in advance of the meeting.

Reminder! Astrophysics SIG meeting is this Friday, April 9!

Posted on by tepiastar

Because the general meeting was moved to April 16, the Astrophysics SIG meeting is on the second Friday of the month this month. It will be held, as usual, in the classroom behind the Centennial Heritage Museum, located at 3101 W. Harvard S., Santa Ana. Harvard is between Edinger and Warner, and the museum is about a block west of Fairview. The driveway is at the western edge of the property.

Feel free to join us it should be a lively meeting! We expect that it will start with an update on the latest pictures and information from Mars, courtesy of Don Lynn. Other features of the evening program will be viewing a video lecture and discussions of issues raised in the lecture and other items of interest to those who are present.

(The picture is of the MOCAT observatory with Anza House behind it, February 2004.)
