MAS Sept 2010 Meeting
Thursday Sept 2nd, 2010

The Next MAS General Meeting will be held on Thursday September 2nd, from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

Speaker: Bill Glass
Topic: 2010 Solar Eclipse

I'd like to remind people about the September monthly meeting to be held on Thursday evening.? Unfortunately, both the Twins and Vikings have home games that same night.? Since I'm the main speaker for the meeting, I'd like to put in a little shameless plug for attending the meeting in the hope that I will get an audience of more than five people.? :-)

The main purpose of my program is to talk about the solar eclipse that I observed from Easter Island in July.? But I'll also be talking about the history of the island and the culture of the people that live there.? So if you'd like to see some pictures and learn about one of the most remote places on the planet, please come to the meeting.? Forget about the Twins and skip the Vikings for the evening (Grandpa Brett will probably only be in for 6 plays anyway).? I hope to see you there.


Bill

Meeting Location: Fairview Community Center
