Pat Morris gave the treasurer’s report.

New Business:

Carver Magnet Middle School is coming to CAAS on November 14 and 21 for a private star party. They will arrive between 6:45 and 7:00 so CAAS members who wish to help need to be there before then.

On November 18, CAAS will have a “Meteors and Marshmallows” event at the CAAS property to watch the Leonid Meteor shower.

On December 1, the Arkansas/Oklahoma Astronomical Society will be hosting a Christmas dinner. For more information, visit their site at www.aoas.org.

John Reed has volunteered his home to host our Annual Meeting and Potluck on December 9 at 7:00 PM. Thank you, John.

It is time for nominations once again. Your Nominating Committee has worked tirelessly to find someone (some would say anyone) who would be able to serve in 2007. Thankfully, we were able to put together a first rate roster for officers and board members. They are as follows:

  • President – Rocky Togni.
  • Vice-President – Bullwinkle Ferren (aka Don).
  • Treasurer – Pat Morris (thank you once again for taking this job Pat).
  • Secretary – Stacy Edwards.
  • Board members – Don Lewis, John Reed, Carl Freyaldenhoven, and Jim Dixon.

There were no other nominations from the floor. If there are none before the Annual Meeting then the candidates above will be elected automatically.

Don Lewis handed out finder charts for Comet Swan.

There was no presentation this evening so that we could go out and play.

We adjourned at 7:20 PM.
