The Saturday banquet that closes out the AAVSO 107th Annual Meeting is fully subscribed! I am starting a wait list.  If anyone is interested in attending, but has not yet purchased their ticket please email me.

There are a few seats left at the Annual Meeting ( literally- we are counting seats at this point) so please register today if you plan to attend. I know that the deadline for early registration is October 15th, but the AAVSO community registered early this year and we are just about fully subscribed.

There are 3 time slots left for speakers. If you have not submitted your abstract please do so before the cut off date on 10/15 or sooner. We are still looking for poster submissions. You can submit your poster title by 10/15 through the abstract link once you have registered for the meeting.

NEWS: Thursday, November 15th at 7pm, Lowell Observatory Deputy Director, Dr. Michael West will give a talk in Giclas Hall. If you arrive on Thursday please plan to join us for this talk and some light refreshments.

If you are attending the meeting and need transportation from designated meeting hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn in Flagstaff, to the Lowell Observatory please email me.

We have many members who have offered to carpool and I need to start connecting people.

Flagstaff weather prediction for mid November looks chilly- mid 40-50's, possible showers and maybe even a few snowflakes- check the weather before you pack!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Flagstaff! Contact me if you have any questions.
