Lately i've been thinking a lot about my journey into telescope observing and where i'd be if I had not found my area astronomy club. I'd likely be still fiddling with a scope in the yard trying to find the Ring Nebula after. So may folks go about this hobby without the support of an area club and that is ok and its probably not for everyone, but i'd think most of us would get something out of it. When ever I receive the club's monthly newsletter I see how active the club is. Some folks email their outreach and observing reports to the club, but others send them just to the newsletter creator/editor, so i'm always excited to see what happened during the month. Even though I am in Central Indiana where the skies are never that great and when they are they aren't anything like in the West we have a very active club with great speakers and members passionate about outreach.

 

I hope that this thread is an encouragement to all! Share your club's recent newsletter and website!

Portland, OR as the "Rose City Astronomers" club.  Despite our less than great weather, we are one of the largest

clubs in the country with over 800 members.  Very active, lots of dark-site campouts across the NW.  It's a really

fun and talented club with a dark site (Bortle 4) just 30 mins out of town..  Heavily populated with engineers from Intel

and the like.  So there is a lot of serious AP and astronomical discussion.
