June Meeting Notes

Here are some notes from the June 20th club meeting.

Due to a miscommunication with county officials, we did not have access to our normal meeting location at the County Administration Building.  Being typical resourceful HAMs and having exceptionally nice weather, we improvised a last minute meeting location at Homecoming Park in Wauseon under one of the pavilions.  While not the ideal location for a large meeting, we were able to conduct our meetings quite effectively and got some fresh air while we were at it. 

The meeting was called to order at 7:45PM, and we had 22 club members in attendance.  Minutes from the previous meeting were read and accepted, as well as the Treasurers report.  Individual committee reports follow:

June Meeting Reminder

The next club meeting will be held on June 20th at the County Administration Building (same location as the BMV/License Bureau), 152 S Fulton St, Wauseon, OH. The club meeting will be at 7:30pm.

I want to thank everyone who responded to the Field Day Roll Call, it is a tremendous help in planning that event.  I also want to remind everyone that we are looking to update our club logo.  Our current T-Shirt logo is simply a tower silhouette with the club name. Please submit any ideas to me and I'll get them on an area of the website for the club to vote on.

Upcoming Hamfests:

Hamfest 2011

We had great weather and a nice turnout for the 2011 Fulton County Hamfest.  Thanks to all who volunteered their time to help with organizing and coordinating and thanks to all who attended. 

As a reminder, the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club VE Team will be have two import changes to our regular June testing session.  First: we are adding a special testing session on June 4th at the FCARC Hamfest in Tedrow.  All normal rules and fees apply, and the testing time will be 10:30AM.  Second: the last Saturday of the month falls on the ARRL Field Day weekend.  To allow for this, we are changing the time to 10:30AM and location to the FCARC Field Day site in Tedrow (same place as the Hamfest), the date is still June 25th. 

Dayton Hamvention 2011

Out trip to Dayton for this years Hamvention.

Education/VE Committee Report:

Dave Nelson reported we had three people attend our April VE Testing session in Archbold.  We had two new technicians pass and one new general class issued as well.   We have one potential candidate for May testing, but do not have a solid commitment yet.  People interested in taking advantage of the May testing session should contact Dave Nelson so he can arrange the VE team for May 28.  Dave also indicated we will offer testing at the Hamfest on June 4th, and on Field Day, June 25th.  Further details and contact information can be found at the Fulton County website http://www.k8bxq.org/node/5
