OTHER INFORMATION

There's a NEW club at Tri-County Community College, and all TCCC students, faculty, and staff are invited to join! [This is a school sponsored organization not a public club; therefore, membership will be limited to the three groups mentioned above.]

The Tri-County Community College Astronomical Society [TC3 AS] welcomes all Astro levels: from Newbies to Amateur Astronomers! Our first meeting will be held in April 2007.

TC3 AS hopes to conduct the following activities in the near future:

* Star Gazing / "Star Parties"
* Informative "TCCC SkyWatchers" & "How To..." Meetings [such as "How to buy and use telescopes and / or pair of binoculars for sky-gazing!"]
* Telescope Time on TCCC's very own T-Scopes
* Cool "Space" Movie Nights
* Field Trips & Special Guest Meetings
* Dark Sky Preservation & Environmental Concerns; local community outreach
* Fellowship with an active community of Space & Astronomy Fans
