Quote:The web-cam was a great way to bring NEAF to thousands of those individuals worldwide that could not come to our show for various reasons.However, there is NOTHING like experiencing the show in person! If you have never been here, come see the BEST astronomy show on the planet!

Quote:Quote: Where does that money go?Steve My guess would be the community college. NEAF takes over their largest facility and auditorium, a big chunk of their parking, and remember: it’s all union labor needed for the prep, etc. It’s also just outside of NYC, one of the costliest areas in the world, in a wealthy neighborhood.

No, it goes to the RAC. They are a non-profit now and they will have to account for what happens to the money. I've been told that any net profit will go to further public outreach to increase interest in our hobby, as well as make NEAF better.
