Hi all. CHAOS did manage to mount a presence at the NC Museum of
Science's "Astronomy Days". We had a table on the second floor right
next to the escalator, and had at least one CHAOS member there from 9-5
Saturday and 12-5 Sunday. We chatted to lots of people about CHAOS,
telescopes, and observing, and handed out lots of CHAOS "propaganda".
Many thanks to Walter for coordinating with the Museum, Jamie for
helping out, and especially to Stewart and Robert for taking solo
shifts. Robert gets a bonus for working both Saturday and Sunday.
Next year we need to do a little better planning so nobody gets stuck on
solo, and so that we can address the (much) younger audience prominent
in the crowd.
