Need contact for the Calumet Astronomical Society
      #6137857 - 10/14/13 09:06 PM

Hello,

If anyone here is, or knows of a member or officer in the Calumet Astronomical Society (in Northwest Indiana), could you please PM me?

My family and I are new to the area and plan to join the club, after having been active in our last club. We went to the meeting location listed on their website on the listed day, but nothing was happening. There were two other members there but they two were as confused as we were.

Thanks,
Brian

I found this on the Calumet Astronomical Society page from Go Astronomy's 2013 Astronomy Clubs Directory.

Thanks,

That's a handy website. I would still appreciate a note from anyone who may be in the club. Their website lists no contact info other than a 'hotline' which is a prerecorded message with no way to leave a message. In general it seems to be a bit out of date so I'm afraid the email provided in the link above may no longer be active.

I know the club is supposedly active as there have been some recent local news stories mentioning them. Just need to find a way to get a hold of someone there.

Thanks,
Brian

...and yep, the email in the link above bounced. No longer active on the server.

Thanks Bill. I plan to. However, I'm trying to make sure there will actually be something going on when I get there, as their website seems to be less than fully up to date. This is what happened to me when I went to the meeting they had scheduled yesterday that didn't happen. Hopefully the Events section of their site is kept up to date. I hate to tie up my babysitter if I don't need one.

I used to be a member, there are a few active members. They are active on Yahoo Groups, look for them as CASX. They were planning an open house for just this past Saturday. I don't have any of their direct numbers. If you don't have any luck, PM me and I can pass your info along.
