President’s Message – September 2012

Posted by as President's Message

Welcome back from a busy summer for the RASC in Victoria. Starting back in June with the spectacular Transit of Venus through to the three warm, sunny days at the end of August at the Saanich Fair, our volunteers were kept hopping from one event to the other up and down Vancouver Island. We were at the Esquimalt Buccaneer Days, the Saanich Strawberry Festival, attended four Provincial Park programs from Goldstream to Miracle Beach, and presented other sessions with the Victoria Libraries and city parks programs. Some of our members were able to enjoy the camaraderie and a few brief sucker holes up at the Island Star Party in July but we capped it all off with our wonderful RASCals Star Party in Metchosin in the middle of August. We kept up our presence on the “Hill” at the CU on Saturday evenings during the summer and our active members had some great skies on view at our own VCO. Thanks to everyone who supported our public programs. We couldn’t keep up our mission of bringing Astronomy to everyone without you.
