Quonset Hut Remodel Project
We are happy to announce that the project is basically done! After so many years, we can now be very proud of our updated meeting hall which included work on the first floor of the A Dome. Our thanks to the many members who have participated, but especially Tamas Kriska, Agnes Kessler, and Jeff Kraehnke. See details here.

Public Viewing Nights We have set the schedule for our public nights for 2017. We are looking for members to help out on all nights!

Current Universal Time
