January’s RCARC Meeting Cancelled

Hello Everyone.
Because of the reasons below and not knowing if we can get a key for the building, tonight’s RCARC meeting has been cancelled. I’m sorry for such short notice. We just found out.
E-mail me if you have any questions. Thanks!!
I hope to see everyone in February.

To all members of RCARC

I just went down to get the key for the meeting and was told the room was
still under construction. There was no one at the rescue center so I don’t
know if I can get the key for that. I will go back to the rescue center
later to see if anyone is there. If not I will be at the meeting place to
let people know that there is no meeting.

If this e-mail does not go to everyone, please relay.

2015 Officers & Christmas Dinner Recap

I thought we had a very good meeting and Christmas Dinner tonight at RCARC!! Lots of good food and drink and fellowship! Met a couple new folks and had a few former members come. Cliff gave a very good presentation on the DSTAR repeater going up at Roosevelt. I think it motivated some folks to go out and buy one.

Officers for 2015 are:

Cliff Segar KD4GT – President
Harry Tirrell KB4AA – Vice President
Ed Smith K5QPO – Secretary
Jim White K4APY – Treasurer.

There was no opponent in the race so the election was by acclamation.

Sterling Edmonds N4VAV got a certificate of appreciation for his efforts helping with the annual Field Day event and securing a sizeable donation that financially benefitted the club this year.

Norm Burns KK4YEU was not present but was to be presented a certificate of appreciation for his lions share of sales of the RCARC Almanac Ads. Lee Grace offered to take Norms certificate to him.

Phil Newman KE4LSH and Anna Hayes KE4VJM both received certificates of appreciation for their excellent job with RCARC Fundraising projects.

Greg Wallace brought his “go box” and I must say the box he used was very nice. He said he bought it at LUV’s Truck Stop and I was impressed by the size and what could be fit inside. Good Job Greg!!

We still have a few folks needing to pickup and pay for their Ham Tag and RCARC Memberships renewals are being accepted now for 2015.
