Last November 9, members of the Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP) held their first lunch get together  meeting at Buffet 101 at Glorietta 2, Makati City.

Prior to going to the lunch get together, the group visited the HIFI November Exhibit at Dusit Thani Hotel wherein ALPer Val Villanueva is one of the exhibitor of the said event!  The event features some of the best audio and visual instruments and equipment ranging from the old traditional vacuum glass tube transistors to the modern digital audio equipment!  Truly, a must visit event for people looking for great sounds and music!!!

After the exhibit, they proceeded to Buffet 101  and had a feasty and delicious eat all you can lunch from 11:45am-3:00pm !!!  The great food was supplemented with great astro talk ranging from latest astro news and equipment to preparation for the upcoming December 7 ALP Xmas Party / Annual Meeting at Aristocrat Restaurant. 

Also worth mentioning is the upcoming ALP election of new set of directors for 2015-2017.  The following directors who are up for reelection are ALP President James Kevin Ty, Secretary Christopher Louie Lu, Auditor Edgar Ang, John Ray Cabrera and Rich Pijuan.  Directors who are also open for reelections are Gary Andreassen and Armando Lee who didn't meet the 10 point system thus are required to seek reelection to retain their post.  2 new nominees that are running for reelection are Roland Sison and Edge Lat.  The top 5 winners will have the traditional 3 years term Meanwhile,  the next two elected directors (Ranked 6-7) will  continue the remaining terms of the 2 directors opened for election .  Good luck to the directors seeking reelection and to the 2 new nominees.
