Please bring a pot luck dish to share with the group. * Note that this meeting is limited to current BAS members and their families but our BAS treasurer will be on duty if you wish to join. We will also be holding our optional gift exchange. If you want to take part, please bring one wrapped gift for each person in your family who wishes to participate. The maximum gift cost limit is $10 and should be astronomy related in some way.
We will also be holding our annual BAS elections at this meeting, for President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. If you're interested in running for one of these positions, please notify a current board member before the meeting. All other BAS positions will be appointed by the elected board at the January board meeting.
As we approach the end of 2013 I'd like to thank all who have participated in our astronomy events throughout the year and wish everyone a safe holiday season and a Happy New Year.
