The AstroCATS Committee has sadly decided that proceeding with AstroCATS 2017 is not in the best interests of the RASC Hamilton Centre, attendees, and especially for our valued vendors. We will however, proceed with the very popular Canadian Astrophotography School (CAPS).
AstroCATS is a very labour intensive event that requires hundreds of volunteer hours, and it stretches the resources and limits of our membership each year. Recent policy changes south of the border have had an impact and many of our US-based vendors expressed concern about border crossing, which further burdens our efforts to offer a diversified vendor lineup to our show attendees. Our decision to cancel the show is, without question, the best course of action for our venders and attendees. We will revisit hosting AstroCATS in 2018.
We hope to host AstroCATS in 2018, and we would love to see you once again.
Thank-you for supporting us in 2017.
