added another benefit

Today marks an interesting day with the execution of an agreement with Skyhound, maker of the excellent SkyTools software, and RASC national. I initiated this conversation with the volunteers at the national office in August 2015. I proposed that the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and Skyhound offer SkyTools at a discount rate to members in good standing. I was trying to mimic what we had done within the Toronto Centre back in August 2010 when we enjoyed the "astronomy club discount." However, I now envisioned a programme operating at the national level, for all members, coast to coast. Another benefit of membership for RASCals, this one with a very clear astronomy component. I am thrilled that we inked the deal.
