It has now been a few years since we have had an "Astrofest". Next year is the International Year of Astronomy.
I have been asked by John Brown, the Astronomer Royal of Scotland if the SAG would be interested in organising a major IYA event.
Now is the chance to voice any interest, both in terms of general participation and also what would you like to see specifically.
The intention is to model the event on the format of the last Astrofest with a series of headline speakers, a venue for Clubs and Societies to set up displays and demonstrations as well as some social events.
Please get in touch with your ideas and suggestions.
There is NO substitute for actually going out and observing!
