Dark Skies Northwest Regional Meeting - December 2nd, 2000
Our first regional meeting was held on 12/02/00 at the University of Washington's Astronomy department. Attendees came from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Arizona and British Columbia. Over 40 people attended the meeting and we raised over $800 dollars. Not bad for our first meeting!
A big thanks to all of our speakers who came from far and near!
One comment was heard repeatedly...
"This was great, lets do it again next year."
