The AGM of the Irish Astronomical Association will be on Wed 18 April, at 7.30 p.m., Lecture Room 5, Stranmillis College, Belfast. After the official business, Barry Loane will give a talk & demonstration of his newly constructed mirror-grinding machine. Yes, folks, the good old amateur's DIY project - grind your own telescope mirror! And for a big one, you really need a machine. Anyone who knows Barry will know that this will be worth seeing. All are welcome, and admission is free as usual, but only IAA members can vote during at the AGM or during any other business at the meeting.
