Hamfest Committee: The next FCARC sponsored Hamfest will be the summer trunk swap on June 5, 2021, followed by the Winter Hamfest on December 4, 2021. Both events have been registered with the ARRL. 
 
Old Business: 

While we are saddened by the loss of KC8UOM, the radio club recognizes that it does have a responsibility to carry on conducting VE testing under the ARRL.  I want to thank John Myers, KD8ZKE, for taking up the task as Liaison to the ARRL VEC.  We should have everything in order this coming week and will be announcing the return of testing sessions shortly.

Hello fellow Ham operators, as you have all probably heard by now, KC8UOM has passed away last week. It was brought to our attention that a GoFundMe has been organized to offset his medical expenses incurred during the last month. Please consider any donation at all to his family. His obituary can be found here.

We at the FCARC are saddened to report that our VE Liaison for the past several years has passed away.  Tom Servoss (KC8UOM) was an incredible support of the club and the hobby in general.  While we sort out the duties and coordinate with the ARRL, test sessions will be considered to be on hold.

The county EMA has requested assistance from the FCARC members for a COVID vaccination clinic event being held this Saturday at the Fulton County Fairgrounds from 10am to 5pm. We are asked to assist local officials with traffic to keep things moving as smoothly as possible. Remember to bring a charged spare HT and plan on dressing warm. We do have spare equipment and PPE gear if needed. We need to meet at the fairgrounds by 9am near the Jr Fair Building. 

Last, please RSVP as soon as possible to Bryan Patterson, kb8elg at hotmail.com / 419-250-6694, so the EMA knows how many volunteers to expect.
