Swap Meet Cancelled! Banquet is still a GO! (change in location!)
Good news, Bad News. On May 23 we learned that the Holiday Inn where we are hosting our Swap Meet and Banquet suffered a catastrophic electrical transformer failure. It actually exploded and took out several load bearing walls.
The hotel was able to accommodate our evening banquet at their Burlington location so we are 100% a GO for the banquet. Unfortunately, this location is NOT suitable for hosting our Swap Meet event. Being that this is prime-time wedding season, we are not able to secure a new location on such short notice. This leaves us with no other choice but to cancel the Swap Meet. Rather, we are postponing it until next year.
Naturally, we are more than a little disappointed. The organizing committee has invested hundreds of man hours in the planning and execution of this event, but this is an outcome that is beyond our control. The good news is that planning for next year is already underway and it will be an even bigger and better event that will include exhibits from some of the major astronomy equipment manufacturers.
The Banquet is still a GO and we still have a few tickets available. The deadline for ticket reservations is June 1.
The evening gets underway with Hors D'Oeuvres at 5:45 and the formal banquet starts at 6:30 PM and features our special Keynote Speaker, Terence Dickinson.
Of course, no astronomy event would be complete without great door prizes!
Hosted by RASC Hamilton Centre
