Charles "Chuck" O'Dale has been fascinated by impact craters since childhood. For many years, he's combined his interests in astronomy, geology, and flying by exploring meteor impact craters throughout North America.
Chuck has served as the RASC Ottawa Centre's Vice-President, President, and Meeting Chair. He has enthralled Ottawa Centre members with his popular series of crater exploration presentations, and is very active in the Ottawa Centre's outreach activities. His contributions were honored with an RASC Ottawa Centre Service Award in 2016.
