Good Evening.. Here it is - Sunday afternoon. Recently returned from the Hamfest in Kaukauna... Nice turnout.. they had some nice door prizes which some of our Club members won... in fact, one won twice!! .. Congratulations! Saw a lot of familiar faces and callsigns, which is why these are more of a social event.. There were some on the selling side of the tables as well.. I was still selling off some of the Baofeng radios and accessories. The pile got smaller.. The funds collected are earmarked for the Club Treasury. There are some headphones available as well with microphones...
The Happenings does not have much news, but more of reminders of the importance of the upcoming meeting with the election of Board Members ( should not have said "election" ... is it me or is everyone getting tired of the barrage ?) but leadership is important for all groups. You will see the present slate of nominations in the Minutes of the Last Meeting... More nominations can still be added to the list but please be sure the person you are nominating is willing to accept the nomination and the position. A big thank you goes out to our present Board who has served us well over the past year ...
According to the ByLaws, you are able to vote by proxy.. If you know someone that is going to the meeting, send them an email or letter, allowing them to vote for you. They may need to present the letter of proxy to get to vote for you.. (sort of like an Absentee ballot) Please do not vote for me as I will be removing my nomination. I am busy enough with the newsletter and the webpage. I have served in the past and need to pass the baton on.. but willing to assist where needed ..
Last month we found that the WIFI at the meeting location may not reach into the area where the Club meeting is being held. So if you cannot link into the Zoom. that is why.....
I hope that if you know someone that is looking to upgrade and does not know of the testing taking place on the 12th, you let them know that testing for all levels will take place at 3 PM after the HamCram at St. N...
