RASC GA (Victoria): The General Assembly at Victoria from June 27 until July 2 was a memorable gathering of astronomers, the largest convention of its kind that I have ever witnessed with 400 to 500 involved. There were the professionals of every kind, the members of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the Western Amateur Astronomers, and the R.A.S.C.. or Centre was also represented by Terry and Ruth Hicks, David Levy, Warren Morrison, and John W. Griese III. The organization required for such a gathering was monumental, but our hosts in Victoria managed to do everything in style. [Reference: Regulus, Jul-Oct 1988, p15]
