New Trustee Barbara Toy | I am very pleased to announce that the Board has selected Doug Millar to fill the vacant Trustee position on the Board for 2017. This means that we will have a full Board again for the next Board meeting, which is on March 5, 2017, and we are looking forward to having Doug join us then.
Many thanks to John Hoot and William Daly for volunteering for the position, though William had to withdraw his candidacy before the vote because of other commitments. We are hoping they will both continue to be involved in the club and interested in its management, and that we may see either or both of them on the Board at some point in the future.
Anza Site Reopened Barbara Toy | The well service that installed our new well pump and the new water storage tank on the Anza site has corrected the plumbing problem that caused the lack of water at the observatory and Anza House. Water should now be going to both of them, and everything should be back to normal. If anyone observes any problem with the water while out there, please let Alan Smallbone or me know about it.
Change in the OCA President Barbara Toy | Unfortunately, Steve Short found that he was unable to continue in the position of OCA President and has resigned that position. The Board has voted me in to fill the vacancy, so I will have the honor of serving the club as the OCA President for 2017.
We are very grateful to Steve for his many contributions to the club, as President, Board member, and in his many other capacities and activities in the time he has been an OCA member, and we wish him and Bonnie the very best for the future.
Saturday Dec 17th BSC star party Steve & Bonnie Short | Come on out to the last near-town OCA star party this year. If we can stay warm, we should have a number of nice objects to view.
