Apologies for the website which I am sure many of you will have discovered is not working, it is just a blank page. Please be assured it is being looked into and we hope to have it up and running again soon, hopefully this post will reach you ok. We have not yet started having in-person meetings yet but have been observing how Usk AS have got on with resumed meetings. There have been a number of issues to resolve there. A new much larger venue is being used which allows for social distancing, which Abergavenny AS does not have. The new venue has had some problems with the bandwidth of the internet connection, which has been responsible for the poor quality of the Zoom meetings. That is being addressed by the venue. In the meantime if any members would like to attend the Usk meetings in person they are more than welcome. For the time being in-person only meetings are being held one week followed by a Zoom only meeting then an in-person only meeting and so on. The arrangement will be kept under constant review.
The next in-person meeting is to be held tomorrow evening in the large function room at the back of The Grange at the top of Maryport Street, Usk. It starts at 7:30 and all are welcome. A group then normally adjourns to the bar and you are very welcome to join in there as well.
The talks are aimed at beginners. Andrew Lohfink will be discussing binoculars and how to observe with them and Nick Busby will present on finding and observing planets for beginners
