We need people like YOU!
People who would like to share in the exciting work of creating a working group for our astronomical interests on Bowen Island. Our first meeting will be about visioning what it is we would like to gain from having a group of individuals that share many interests in and passions for astronomy. I have created a short list of what I believe our needs are at this moment in community building. Experienced or brand new, young & old, we want & need everyone’s input to make this working group a success!
We also need:
A Projector for laptop presentations at the meetings.
Telescopes and binoculars for sharing at group observing nights.
Experienced science & astronomy people who would like to volunteer for talks & presentations in our meetings.
Experienced science & astronomy people who would like to assist in teaching and/or developing short courses to offer our members.
People with organizational experience operating non-profit groups under Roberts Rules
Help developing a 5 year plan that would include a permanent meeting place to hold a library, meetings, store telescopes & equipment. Our ultimate goal will be to have our very own observatory! This is much more do-able than you might think!
Thanks to a very generous offering by Niel of the Village Bakery, we will be holding our very first meeting of the Bowen Island Astronomy Group, at the Village Bakery within the next couple of weeks. We need to choose a night that works for the most amount of people , so I have created the following internet poll on the first page of our wordpress website to assist us in making that decision. You can choose 2 days that would work best for you. Please keep your voting to one time only. We will announce the meeting day asap by email, on this website and on the Bowen Forum.
