1. Assistance in the preservation of historical sundials
The catalogue is out of print !
Cataloging has continued, and presently (January 1999) 2850 sundials are recorded in the data bank.
Since 1990, GSA has informed its members through a bi-annual bulletin (RUNDSCHREIBEN) about events, literature, gnomonic, activities of GSA - members, and general articles about sundials.
4. Meetings and Excursions
Since 1990, GSA has organised an annual meeting in autumn, usually in September. At these meetings the members of the GSA can get acquainted and exchange their experiences with sundials.
On the first day (Friday) matters of the working group are dealt with, lectures and slide shows are presented. The programme on the second day (Saturday) usually is an all day bus trip to view sundials in the respective region.
