Subject: QUIZ, LECTURE,  MARS WATCHES:

Hi all,
 
1. A final reminder about the next IAA meeting, on Wednesday 2 November,  
Stranmillis College, Belfast, when yours truly will present an astronomical  
version of a well-known TV quiz programme on which you can win 1,000,000. We  can 
only offer a maximum per person of 100, but it will be real money! But,  
just like on TV, not everyone will get much beyond question 10 or so! It starts  
at 7.30 p.m., admission free as always, including light refreshments. Come for 
 the craic, as well as the money!
