BREAKING NEWS: The Fargo-Moorehead Astronomical Society has just informed us that they will not be hosting THE NCRAL 2015 convention as originally planned. Their official statement is presented below:
We of the Fargo-Moorhead Astronomy Club regret to inform you that we are unable to host the NCRAL 2015 convention, and the June 5-6 event in Fargo is cancelled. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this causes you. Our club has had a trying year with a series of setbacks. Economic circumstances have affected our university partners and membership; half of our core members are gone due to job relocations out of our metro area, the state, and even the country. The remaining members have been discussing what the future of the FMAC will be. We wish your clubs the best for the future, and that they may live long and prosper.
Scarlet Gray Bernard
President, Fargo-Moorhead Astronomy Club
If anyone would like to pick up the ball and host this year’s convention, contact Gerry Kocken immediately; otherwise, there will be no convention this year.
