Past talks to Boston Astronomers

Well, we failed to get enough members on the committee to remain legal, and have therefore had to suspend having formal meetings.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries, suggestions, or comments, as I have only been doing this for a year, and am learning how to be programme secretary and club chairman. see also the club history, and the current programme for more information.

Thanks to all of the mentioned speakers, for jumping in to help us out with talks at short notice.

November 2000: We have been informed by others that we have the speaker Stewart Clark comming to give us a talk, but as of yet, we have had no information from him to that affect. Failing finding the contact and getting confirmation that he is coming, that we still have the room, and the ability to inform members, this meeting was also cancelled due to no speaker. As far as we know, he didn't get in touch with anyone.

October 2000: meeting cancelled due to no speaker following committee problems.

September 2000: due to personal problems, most of the committee had to resign, but we couldn't have an AGM or EGM due to insufficient time to notify members due to the constitution.
