BRING HOME THE BACON AWARD
At Starfest '98, during the evening program of August 22nd, the North York Astronomical Association announced the Starfest 'Bring Home The Bacon' Award.This award was inspired by a comment made by Brian Marsden several years ago at a joint meeting of the Royal Canadian Institute and Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Toronto Centre. At that meeting, Brian indicated that Canadian Amateurs were not keeping pace with other amateurs around the world with the discovery of asteroids and other things that go bump in the night.
The intent of this award is to stimulate observational activity among Canadian Amateurs by providing a cash prize for the next person who makes an astronomical discovery.
