LAST DAY to register for AstroImage 2004 at reduced fee!

Posted on by tepiastar

Just a reminder for all my fellow procrastinators – today (8/20) is the LAST DAY to register for AstroImage 2004 at the reduced fee ($49 instead of $65 – both are a real bargain, considering the program, but why not get the better bargain?).

The easiest way to be sure you’re within the deadline is to register on line and pay through PayPal. Or, if you’re going to be at the Astrophysics meeting tonight, you can give me your form and a check for the right amount (you have the option of ordering the dinner for $20 as well as the conference video for $15) and I’ll make sure it gets to Charlie. Or – if you trust the Post Office – you can mail it to Charlie at the club’s P.O. Box (1762, Costa Mesa, CA 92628).
