Default Free Bookman's Telescope Workshop 7/20

BOOKMAN'S FREE TELESCOPE WORKSHOP

We have our first RSVP for the Bookman's Class on July 20th.
Volunteers are needed.

Please let me know you are attending by email or RSVP on the PAS Website (preferred method if you are signed up on the site).

Currently we do not have a speaker for that class. If you would like to present something on astronomy for 30 minutes to 1.5 hours in length, please let me know so we can schedule you. I was hoping to have a speaker to draw in more public to this event.

Remember, our Bookman's events end at the end of this year, until Bookman's is done renovating its back room. And they have said that they may not have a back room after the renovation for us to borrow. So, we have to consider that we will use their facilities as much as we can up to the end of the year, or when they close it off from use, and then plan other locations for similar events. So, this is one of the best times to do a test run on a presentation you might want to present for PAS or other purposes on astronomy. We welcome anyone wishing to do a presentation. Maybe even 2 smaller presentations from 2 PAS members.

Email me today if you would like to present something on this date.

The next Bookman's class after this one is on 9/21, no speaker is needed that day, as the class is only 2 hours long.

Then we have 11/16 in which Mike is doing a presentation for that class.

I really would like to have someone do a presentation. Please let me know you are interested. Thank you so much....

And come volunteer to help those in need of learning how to use their telescopes. Your help, input, and attendance is desired and needed!!!

Bookman's events are indoors. They happen RAIN OR SHINE.

Terri, Events Coordinator

PS: A copy of this notice is going out to the PAS membership and in the PAS Digest Blog. If you get duplicates, it is because you are on those other lists as well.

Default Bookman's Workshop 7/20 2:30PM TO 6:30PM

Good morning,

We currently have two public RSVP and 2 PAS Members RSVP (and their spouses). We'd love to have a few more PAS members joining us this
Sunday to assist with the workshop. This workshop is longer than the usual.
We go from 2:30pm to 6:30pm (6pm if everyone leaves prior).

Dinner after will be at Carlos O'Briens Mexican Food. The RSVP I received from the public will be joining us at Carlos as well.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP within the calendar by Sunday morning. Seating is limited, and so the first 12 to RSVP including PAS Members, gets the seats.

We will be discussing (for the Public) Telescopes, Telescopes accessories such as eyepieces, filters, finders, where to buy telescopes, where to get accessories for telescopes, and much more.

This is an open form workshop. That means you bring your telescope, accessories, star charts, and questions and we work to answer your questions. It is not a classroom setting where there is an instructor and
unfortunately we did not find a guest speaker for this date. On the longer workshops, we like to have a guest speaker for up to 1.5 hours to share something astronomy related with the group, and then the rest of the time, we talk telescopes one-on-one.

Everyone is welcome. RSVP is required. If you can not RSVP on this site, email Events@pasaz.org prior to Sunday.

See you there!
