Presidents message - December 11th

11 Dec 2018 9:26 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

As we fast approach the holiday season I wanted to extend my Seasons Greetings to all club members, along with everyone else.

It has been a busy year, from casino fundraisers, flea markets, Field Day events, to public service events with a variety of ski, bike, and rally races. We even had the opportunity to show off our capabilities at events like Disaster Alley and the Edgemont Emergency Preparedness event this past September. We also had the opportunity for members and others to upgrade their license with our Advanced class, which was held in early January. We also introduced the hobby to a few newcomers with our Basic license class in the fall, which is due to wrap up soon.

All of these things that were done this year could not have been done without the MANY volunteers, and the many volunteer hours that our members have put in, and for that I want to say THANK YOU!

As we look ahead to the New Year, we will be posting information on our website regarding our Advanced class, which we will begin in early January, that is, if we get enough interest to host the Advanced class. We welcome all licensed Amateurs that would like to upgrade their license to Advanced level, or just come for a re-fresher.

The executive have recently reviewed and approved some project proposals to augment and simplify both our club station and communications trailer. We look forward to those improvements being carried forward in to the New Year for the benefit of all club members, and the overall radio community.

May you have a great holiday season, and we will connect again in the New Year!
