The Cuyahoga Astronomical Association (CAA) is pleased to announce that our 2021 OTAA convention at Letha House West will take place July 31. The Convention is intended for members of the CAA and members of other Northern Ohio astronomy clubs, not the general public. This year we plan to start the event at 2:00 p.m. We have a few hours scheduled for relaxation and socializing prior to our potluck dinner which is planned for 5:00. Following dinner, around 6:00, we plan to raffle off our door prizes. After the raffle there will be time to set up telescopes for evening observations, weather permitting. The club is looking forward to hosting the event after a one-year pause!
CAA will provide hot dogs, buns, and condiments; however, in order for this event to be a success we invite each attendee to participate in the potluck by bringing a dish of their choosing to share. Additionally, please bring your own beverages (no alcohol) as none will be provided.
Door prizes include a variety of framed artwork, some brand-new equatorial mounts, a slightly used telescope, and the grand prize is a brand-new, in-box, 127mm Celestron Newtonian on an equatorial mount donated to the club (~$180 value): https://www.celestron.com/products/powerseeker-127eq-telescope

6:00 PM: Raffle
Observing to follow, weather permitting
