Mr. Glenn Walsh, 
This is a follow-up email to the written letter you
should have received from 
the AAAP Executive Committee earlier this week. 
As a result of your AAAP membership termination, 
all of your personal information, including website
have been removed from the AAAP club website. 
(written letter enclosed). 
Mr. Glenn Walsh 
P.O. Box 1041 
Pittsburgh, PA. 15230-1041 
Dear Mr. Walsh, 
As the President of the Amateur Astronomers
Association of Pittsburgh, Inc. (AAAP), 
I am sending you this letter to inform you that the
AAAP Executive Committee 
has terminated your membership in the AAAP, effective
June 14th, 2002. 
This action was taken because of your failure to
respond to the instructions specified in the letter
sent to you on May 28th, 2002, regarding your
statements listed in the section 'Friends of the Zeiss
RFP Response 2002 May 22 Page VIII-4' which described
the events surrounding the Zeiss and the Siderostat
and the position taken by the AAAP Executive
As stated in the previous letter, the AAAP Executive
Committee had found your website statements to be both
inaccurate and misleading. 
You were officially directed to immediately remove
from your 'Friends of the Zeiss' website all
references to the AAAP.  Additionally, you were
instructed to send a letter of retraction of your
Request for Proposals (RFP) to the City of Pittsburgh,
and remove all references to the AAAP prior to any
possible resubmission of the RFP.  You were to mail to
me at the below address a copy of said retraction as
proof of compliance. 
These instructions from the AAAP Executive Committee
were non-negotiable. 
You were given until June 11th to comply, with failure
to do so resulting in the termination of your
membership in the AAAP. 
Larry E McHenry, President 
Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh 
( a 501c 3 non-profit organization )
