I don't know how old I was when I was one.

"Considered as a collector of rare and precious things, the amateur astronomer has a great advantage over amateurs in other fields ... the amateur astronomer has access at all times to the original objects of his study; the masterworks of the heavens belong to him as much as to the great observatories of the world. And there is no privilege like that of being allowed to stand in the presence of the original." --Robert Burnham Jr, Burnham's Celestial Handbook

Quote:...I'm going to call the CN badges a complete success. Joe, thank you for doing them. A lot of people remarked on my CN badge- with a comment like, "I've seen a lot of those." I propose they should be a staple of future shows- folks were keeping track.-Rich

I'll be doing the same for NEAF (I won't be attending, but it's worth it for the CN exposure), and ASAE next year.Thanks to Ron (Rboe) and Steve (WaterMaster) for printing them up, and Steph for supplying the lanyards.
