If you are interested in becoming a member and posting messages to this group, please send a short astro-bio of your interests in astronomy and the city you live in, something of an introduction for members of the group to Robert Arn [email link]
list members belong to the Longmont Astronomical
Society (LAS), the Northern Colorado
Astronomical Society (NCAS),
Astronomical Society (CAS),
& other clubs around the 'Front Range' of Colorado.
The FRAC was originally created (March 1999) and conceived by Archer Sully, and it has an interesting charter:
in June of 2002, Archer sought out a replacement and LeRoy Guatney
up and volunteered. In August
2004, Tom Teters took over moderator duties. Then in January 2012 I
(Robert Arn) began my role as the majordomo of FRAC.
The list is still run from
the system at seds.org, but Archer and LeRoy have setup a Yahoo Group
to act as a list archiver, as well as other features for list members.
The Yahoo Group acts only
as a list archive, so no posts are permitted there. The Calendar,
Files, Links, and Photos section are visible
to the public, and don't even require a Yahoo membership
to view. The message archives are visible only
to list members. If I know you, I will permit read-only access to the
list via the Yahoo Group, but to keep the message archives private, you
must register with Yahoo.
Please note that when Archer
was archiving the messages on beachbat, the messages, including
complete e-mail address, was visible and on-line. You may now also read
list archives at seds.org, if you are a list member.
words of warning. This is not just an LAS list [Archer is an LAS list
member, so is LeRoy], but a general,
it's a list for observers in the area. The idea is to
promote cross-club observing sessions and communication.
This is a mailing list, not
a club. "tac" is a term borrowed from
another mailing list that [Archer] was on (used with permission).
