Annual Summer Club Potluck/Barbecue

Bring a hearty appetite and your favorite dish to share and sit down to lots of eating and talking! Everyone always enjoys this feast, and it gives us a chance to relax and socialize in a most pleasant setting.

Martin Carey our esteemed Past President (and all-around nice guy) will bring a large BBQ to the picnic, so that we can enjoy that amenity; the rest is up to you! We can also use paper plates, cups, plastic ware and napkins.

While the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt were each found to possess a large number of substantial icy-and-rocky worlds, none of them approached even Earth in size or mass, much less the true giant worlds. Then, the discovery of Sedna in 2003 turned out to be even more groundbreaking than astronomers realized. [PDF]
