Another hello from Beckenham
« on: Jun 12, 2012, 13:16:50 »
Dear All

It has been a pleasure attending the well organised meetings for the past three months. My friend Sergio got me in to OAS.

My interest in Astronomy is from my high school. My knowledge of anything beyond aeroplane cruising height is limited and so everything you guys tell me on the stage is new.

I have an interest in small things like viruses but not big things like bacteria because I am a clinical virologist. I have a passing interest in scientific basis of Origin of Life :alien: on earth which may upset few people, in this forum and in few other places.

I will not be in a position to attend any of the camps or viewings for the time being because of child care commitments. I am hoping to bring my son over to OAS sometime soon when he grows up. I am also hoping to bring over some of my friends for monthly meets to introduce them to OAS.

Regards

Sudhanva

Welcome Sudhanva,

Be careful what you ask for...... :-?
My knowledge of anything beyond aeroplane cruising height is limited and so everything you guys tell me on the stage is new..
This lot will tell you anything to sound intelligent.........it might not be right, but it will sound good. ;)
Seriously, if you have any queries regarding astronomy, whether it be about telescopes or any other aspect, you will find the answer here, and if not, they will point you in the right direction (and I don't mean up :roll:)
The OAS is very welcoming and very, very accommodating  :o (as you would have seen by some of the members that were at the meetings) and now has members scattered around the home counties who still venture to the meetings and other activities held by the society.
Good luck and hopefully we'll see you at the meetings.

Yes welcome,
I'm sure you'll get answers to most of your questions here on the forum and at the meetings.

Thanks everyone for the kind welcome. I have met many of you already.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend tomorrow's lecture on Mercury. My son wants me to stay with him and watch Football........enough said.

Also, I would like to apologise to the OAS organisers.

It takes great effort to select and get the speakers. Speakers make an serious effort to travel, prepare slides and talk.
It is a pity if the audience is thin.
I hope I am the only one absent because of football tomorrow.
