I had so much fun last night at the DAO. The cake was so realistic – Peter Jedicke
I’d like to offer my sincerest thanks and congratulations to the Victoria Centre for putting on one of the most memorable 5 days that I can recall in either recent or distant memory. The programmes, the spirit, and the people all made for a real sense of community and camaraderie. I can barely imagine the behind-the-scenes work that went into making this such a special event. A special thank-you to the tireless volunteers who ferried fellow RASCals to and from events and the airport. It was greatly appreciated. – Craig Levine

Hear! Hear! Many thanks for a grand time.- David L. Clark

Visits from Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge, where the Queen knights our own Randall Rosenfeld; Winston Churchill inspires us (Chris Gainor); and Bob MacDonald of Quirks and Quarks pulls us along with his concepts for space travel. Tonight’s banquet was a great end to a successful GA here in Victoria! – Joe Carr

Just got back from tonight’s AGM observing session at the 32″ telescope on top of the Bob Wright Centre. A big thanks to Russ for donating his time so everyone could get in some astronomy on the big scope. – Bruce Lane

I also heard many positive comments from guest delegates about our GA, during its four-day run. Well done, everyone! – Sherry Buttnor

Dave Balum wowed the RASC GA 2014 crowd inside the Plaskett dome. Dave was dressed in period costume which Dr. Plaskett would have worn in his day 100 years ago. – Joe Carr

    Hi, I thoroughly enjoyed my first GA in Victoria, Spectacular Job! Will you be posting photos and video shot during the event? I would like to show them to the local centre to inspire them to attend the next one. I would especially like a digital copy of the Group photo and video of the award presentations if possible.

    I would also like to send a special token to a few of the volunteers who went above and beyond for me during my stay. What address should I send them to?
