Feb 20-21, 2015
RASC Edmonton Centre Casino

The RASC Edmonton Centre is having another casino Fri-Sat, Feb 20-21, 2015. This is our Centre's largest source of revenue which maintains a large part of our operational and outreach budgets, lets us purchase astronomical equipment and undertake innovative projects that bring astronomy to the general public, and helps bring fabulous speakers to Edmonton. Please help out by volunteering for a shift - it's fairly easy work and you get fed quite nicely.

Download the Casino Volunteer Worker Application or get one at a Regular Meeting, fill it out and give it to Peter Hall at a Regular Meeting. If you have questions, email
