The Victoria Centre celebrated the 2003 IAD on May 10th at the RBCM. The RASC, Victoria Centre extends a sincere vote of thank to the Royal British Columbia Museum for providing the venue for us to celebrate this event. The weather was just perfect for the Solar observing during the day and then for the night sky viewing at the Centre of the Universe. This is now four years in a row that we have had cloudless skies. I hope we will keep this tradition intact in the future.

The success of this year's IAD was again mainly due to so many volunteers who contributed their time in sharing their hobby with the general public. Some of the volunteers spent not only all day Saturday but also gave time on Friday for the set up and then at the Centre of the Universe for the night sky viewing. On behalf of the organizing committee, I take my hat off to all the volunteers for their commitment and dedication to make the IAD an enjoyable event. Many thanks to the members who brought their telescopes for observing at the Museum and at the Centre of the Universe.

Very many thanks to all the Volunteers. Perhaps we will do it again on April 24th next year.
