Join us on January 10th 2020 at 7:30pm – Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

On Friday January 10th we will enjoy our first meeting of 2020!  In the wake of the gift giving season there are surely many new astro toys out there.  At our meeting we have several members bringing in new gear to show, and tales to tell why they are so enthused about their new acquisitions.

All members are invited to participate.  If you would like to share a story about a piece of equipment, new or old, large or small, please get in touch.  Telescopes, eyepieces, books, accessories and anything astro related is welcome.  It’s all good!  And the more participants we have the better!

Each member need only spend a couple of minutes sharing their story about their item.  To be part of this fun evening and get in the lineup just get in touch with our Chair John Gauvreau via email at “chair ‘at’”

Non-members are welcome

Non-members are welcome to join us at our general meeting events to see what we’re all about. You’ll find a club full of enthusiastic amateur astronomers passionate about this fascinating science and hobby. We’re confident you’ll want to become a member of the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers and join us in exploring this fascinating hobby.

Place and time

We’ll be meeting at McMaster Innovation Park located at 175 Longwood Rd.  South, Hamilton, along Highway 403 between Aberdeen Ave. and Main St. West. Starting time is at 7:30pm.

Door prizes

There will be a draw for door prizes at the meeting and a free door prize ticket to all who arrive before the 7:30 start time! As it’s the holiday season, there will be some extra prizes to be won!

Food share donations

Donations of non-perishable food for the Hamilton Food Share program will be collected at this meeting. Please drop off any items at the drop-box located near the entrance of the auditorium. All donations gratefully accepted and thanks to your generosity we’ve collected thousands of pounds of food since we began. Let’s keep up the great work as the need continues.

Hello. I’m to understand that the new meeting place is now on Longwood, no longer at the old spectator building?
Is there a specific entrance, floor or room number to be looking for?
Would appreciate this info. Thanks.
