I enjoyed the meeting tremendously and most of the presentations. The only problem for me - and perhaps it is partly my age - was that the acoustics of the theatre did not seem particularly good and I found it difficult to hear what some of the later contributors had to say, partly because they spoke too low.
All in all I am glad I attended and I will certainly as many such meetings as I can, and hope the weather for observing improves. It was certainly a boost for me to see so many fellow enthusiasts.
The only sour note of the evening was that the parking ticket machine would not accept my credit card and I now I have to pay a $30 fine :-(

The snow was not a barrier as I took transit, great presentation on Galileo and the change from earth centred to Sun centered Solar System, some very nice scopes on hand and lots of pizza and drinks, I did not stay for the film "Contacts" as I have seen it several times, a good start to the year of Astronomy but SFU needs a LPA program.
