The meeting was called to order at 7:35pm with 23 members in attendance.  We are glad to have such a great turnout for these meetings, it certainly helps shape the direction of the club. Introductions were made and minutes from the previous meeting as well as the treasurer's report were read and accepted.

Committee reports follow:

Education: The VE Team held a regular testing session at the end of January, with one person in attendance, passing their Extra class license.  KB8ELG reported that the Technician classes are going well at the Delta Public Library.   We have three participants in the free class, and he has confidence in their ability to pass the class next Saturday.  Conducting the class with KB8ELG are KC8UOM and KD8KBU.  Testing next week will be at 1;00pm at the Delta Public Library.  While we advertised 12:00pm, we are attempting to push it back an hour to give the tech class attendees an extra hour for study.
