I'm sorry I've been a no-show too. I've travelled more than usual this summer, with more to come. I agree about the challenges of summer meetings in general -- my book group gives up. For me, though, a realistic target for attendance to any group would probably be about once a month at most. Thanks for organizing ...  -- Maureen

I think it's tough getting things like this going in the summer; there's a lot going on and a lot of folks out of town.  I know I was out of town 3 weekends last month, and am about to head out in a couple hours for the second weekend in a row!  Things typically calm down in the fall a bit... I'm in a knitting/craft meetup as well and we always struggle to get attendance in the summer months. 
 
That said, I'm sure a meeting would be helpful.  And I did get your email, Gerry, and would be happy to organize a couple of "urban astronomy" things for people in the city (or those who don't mind coming in) - getting together for some of the Air & Space Museum planetarium shows, etc.

Gerry: I am sorry for not attending any meetings yet.  Between getting ready for college and working, it has been hectic. I am planning to attend the next meeting.

Sorry,
