Helpful Information about Refreshments:

For 15-30 people. First come, first served.
Refreshments can be divided into two parts, drinks and food.
This is a good way to divide it up if you ask someone to help you.
Drinks generally are 2-4 bottles of soda, a bag of ice in a small cooler, and cups.
Food is generally chips or pretzels, dip, and cookies. Napkins.    
It is a snack, not a meal. It is not a competition, and you are not expected to spend excess money.
No one is asked to contribute more than once a year.

Helpful Information about reporting the Minutes:

The record of our club activities and decisions over the years has been useful to officers, members, and new members alike.
Our elected Secretary generally takes the minutes, but occasionally a need arises, and we are grateful when a member volunteers to help out.

1. Please include date, place, the attendance list of members, guests, and children.
2. Detailed minutes are welcome. Underlined blanks for missed information is fine.
3. Please send as a MS Word document, and use the following format:
a. Font: Arial, font size: 11.
b. 5x5x5x5 margins work well.
c. Please do not use headers, footers, paragraphing, or other special layouts.
d. Label the minutes at the top, and name the file using YYYYMMDDACAYIMin,
where event occurred Y=year,M=month,D=day, ACA= Astronomy Club Augusta, YI=Your Initials, Min=Minutes.
