Default Newsletter Deadline

Happy Day to everyone!!!

Don, our Editor, is doing a spectacular job of making a very interesting, informative, historical account, PAS newsletter each month (Sept - May).

To do this, he can use a little help.
If you have any submissions to provide such as

1) Reviews of any events you attended, astronomy related, PAS or not, send them to Don.

2) As a PAS member, you can advertise your astronomy equipment for sale.

3) As a PAS member, you can also put your request for astronomy equipment you might be looking for.

4) upcoming events of interest. Schedule them with Terri, then send both Terri & Don a write up about the event to be included in the newsletter.

5) Did you take photos at the last meeting or PAS event? Send copies of
the best ones to Don for submission in the newsletter. Don and Terri do most of the photography for the club, but it is nice to have a little extra help once in a while.

Now, the deadlines.....

For the 2009-2010 PAS Season, I have posted these deadlines here
as well as in the calendar. The deadline for newsletter submissions is 2 weeks prior to the next PAS meeting. Our meetings fall on a Thursday, so if you want to be sure to get your info into the next possible newsletter, send it over 2 Thursdays in advance of the meeting.

The reason for this early deadline date is that the goal is to have the newsletter ready to go out into the mail by the Meeting of the Minds. If you look at a calendar, you will see that a meeting falls on the 1st Thursday of the month. The Meeting of the Minds is on the last meeting of a month. Thus, if the deadline for the newsletter is the week prior to the MOM's, that gives Don a chance to complete the newsletter, print the hard copies for those PAS members who are not on the internet, and bring the finished newsletter to the MOM"s to hand deliver those he can... which saves PAS
postage on the hand delivered newsletters.

So, next time you have a submission, if you can get it to Don right away, as soon as it can be written, then you wil most likely make the deadline for
which ever newsletter is being created next.

Please send your submissions to Don at:

and events can be sent to Terri at

We appreciate your assistance in making the PAStimes Newsletter,
the best astronomy club newsletter out there!!!

The notice for the summer issue is sent out by email about a month before the deadline and may change, so I will not post it here. Watch for these dates and future dates in the PAS Calendar within this site.

Thank you for your time.
