June 26th – June 29th 2014
Join the members of Victoria Centre as we commemorate 100 years of being a RASC Centre at our 2014 RASC General Assembly. To add to the festivities, we will also be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, located in Saanich B.C., just to the north of downtown Victoria.
The 2014 General Assembly will showcase the DAO, the University of Victoria’s new observatory located on the campus of our assembly’s headquarters and a wide-ranging scientific and cultural schedule of events for your family, all conducted against the spectacular natural beauty of Canada’s West Coast. Guest Speakers include Dr Laura Ferrarese, Bob McDonald of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks, and RASC’s own Peter Broughton.
Victoria is serviced by both of our domestic air carriers and can be reached by convenient car ferry service connecting Victoria to Vancouver and Seattle, Washington.
From on-campus accommodation at the University of Victoria to nearby hotel and RV facilities, there are many lodging options available in the Greater Victoria for RASC members.
Please join us in Victoria June 26 – June 29, 2014!
