The Planetary Society's Director of Projects served as MC for the exciting public event at this year's PDC.  It was the perfect venue for Bruce to announce the winners in the latest round of Shoemaker Near Earth Object grants from the Society.  These awards enable dedicated amateur astronomers and smaller professional observatories to vastly improve their ability to discover and track asteroids and comets that pose a threat to Earth.
