The Dumfries Astronomy Society AGM will be held next Tuesday evening.
This will be our first face to face meeting in over two years because of the Covid pandemic. For these past two years, like many astronomy clubs, we had to hold meetings virtually, in our own case, using Zoom. There have been advantages in this as distance is no object to speakers and offers more possible choices of them. However, not being able to meet members of our society in our normal setting has also created challenges, and Zoom does not really lend itself to personal friendly interactions and fellowship.
Going forward, it will be important to decide what patterns for our monthly meetings we would like to adopt. Shall we go to meeting monthly at Lochvale House after a year of remote meetings, or is a mixed program of in person talks and Zoom sessions the best option?
Please do come. It’s your society and your views are important!
